Scientists have done a study based on who in the family provides more care for their parent as they advance into their elderly years. Based solely on the gender of the subject scientists were able to find that there is an immense difference in compassion.
Scientists think that women will spend more time with the parent to make up for the time the men are gone. Scientists associate this “guilt” as compassion for their elder and can prove that men will generally spend less time with the parent.
By doing this males can dump the mental and physical load off onto their female siblings. Also males can dump financial burdens off onto women by not spending time with their parent.
Even though things seem to be going just fine these days with elderly people it could be better. Males need to step up to the plate and start caring for their parents. They are the people who raised you. The least you could do is show a little compassion for them just like they did for you.
