Female singer, Simi has taken to social media to call the attention of parents towards the upbringing of the boy and girl child.
The mother of one via her Instagram stories lamented on how the boy child is left to cater for himself and make money whatsoever he does is right while the girl child is being disciplined and taught to have good manners.
According to her, women have waken up from their slumber as they have realized they are more than what the society expects.
In a lengthy Instagram story, Simi wrote;
“Many parents raised their daughters and let the boys raise themselves. This is why a lot of people think boys are easier to raise. If these boys fumble they say ”boys will be boys.” If the girls fumble the exact same fumble, they say she is wayward or wasn’t raised right.
“Hence, more effort is put in raising girls. She’s taught to be a good wife, good mum, prudent, enduring, faithful, perfect, or whatever society’s version of perfect is. Men are taught to make money and provide.
“The pressure to make good decisions is more intense for women. Men are usually able to make whatever choices or mistakes and to take more risks because society will excuse them because ‘boys will be boys.’ What a privilege.
“I think the tide is changing a little with our generation. More women are realising they are more than what society expects. I love this for us,”
