Lighthouse Learning’s New Social Campaign Fails to Define The Perfect Mother
India, May 16, 2023: This Mother’s Day, Lighthouse Learning, one of India’s leading early years and K-12 education groups, unveiled its new campaign to take a strong stand against the myth of a “perfect mother.” In its new campaign titled ‘#ThePerfectMother’ launched last week, Lighthouse Learning rejects the notion that there is a “right” way to be a mother. As part of this unique campaign, the leading education group conducted a social experiment among people across social strata to find the definition of the ‘perfect mother’.
In an effort to identify the precise definition of the ‘perfect mother’, the Lighthouse Learning group conducted social experiments employing various well-established and diverse array of metrics like Vox Pop, group discussions with parents, including a comprehensive survey of the vast expanse of the internet, and engagement with influencers and the larger internet community. The team also consulted with the distinguished generative AI platform ChatGPT. However, despite deploying an array of survey metrics, the company was unable to define a clear and definitive version of the perfect mother and concluded that there is no right definition of who an ideal mother is.
#ThePerfectMother campaign was conceived to re-emphasize the fact that there is no such thing as the perfect mother, despite all the expectations set by the media, books, and the larger society. By acknowledging the diversity of motherhood and the unique challenges faced by individual mothers, Lighthouse Learning aims to promote a culture of inclusion, equity, and understanding. Through this social experiment, Lighthouse Learning, which empowers 1,000+ women entrepreneurs, challenges established norms in society through unconventional ways. The campaign also reinforces the brand’s commitment to critical thinking and independent inquiry – which it inculcates through its path-breaking curriculum for students.
On the occasion of the launch of the campaign, Prajodh Rajan, Co-Founder and Group CEO, of Lighthouse Learning, said, “At Lighthouse Learning we understand the pressure parents face to meet societal expectations. Still, we firmly believe that promoting perfectionism is not the solution. Instead, we prioritize equity and inclusion in all our institutions, embracing every child’s unique qualities and abilities. Our educators understand that every child is different, and therefore, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to education. We strive to create a learning environment that is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive. Similarly, through our Mother’s Day campaign, we aim to challenge the misconceptions and myths around motherhood in society. By promoting equity, inclusion, and critical thinking through this social experiment, we hope to inspire parents and caregivers across the country to embrace their unique journeys. As a pioneer in education, we aim to foster a culture of learning in our society that values individuality, empathy, and resilience.”
Lighthouse Learning remains committed to helping parents and caregivers raise confident, compassionate, and empathetic children equipped to think critically and navigate the complex challenges of the modern world. Through its ‘Child First’ ideology, Lighthouse Learning group nurtures over 150,000 students every day across its network of 1,400+ preschools and 50 schools spread across the country.
