Boy-child or Girl-child, does it matter?

boy, girl, does it really matter?

These days even us so-called new generation Nigerians are so crazy about the boy thing. Does it really matter? You want your name to last? Well, you won't even know it is lasting, because you not going to be there to see it lasting.

Why not just love kids boy or girl? Personally I want two kids. Two boys? Two girls? Boy and girl? Who cares, I just want kids. I want to know why you want as many boys as possible or vice versa.

I used to believe it is God's duty to determine

the sex of a child until recently that I came

across a chart that accurately helps you to

choose your desired sex for your baby.

Most people don't know there is something

like that anyway.

I don't want to this but you can check here

for more info and proofs anyway.

Kimba, do you have any evidence to support your claim that most often, it is child who are despised that turn out great in life?

Of course not. There you go again making wild comments. Please my friend, you might be able to get away with comments like that on the religious section, but that is not going to cut it anywhere else.

I believe every child is a gift from God. You never know the child that will make you proud. Most often, its Children who were despised that turn out great in life,

Guys you cant imagine i am the only child of my mom a girl and my dad was ok with dat. all of a sudden he changed y cos people asked him wot he was still doin wit Momsy. He went ahead and married without my mom knowin. Is it right. Anyway i have made him too proud that he doesnt want the male child of his 2nd iyawo. Men it was horrible but now at least he prefers me to his male child wot he did all wot he did for i dont just know. Cos of tradition i presume.

I want a girl to empower to raise her to be a progressive, respectful, dignified black man.

I want a boy to empower to raise him to be a progressive, respectful, dignified black woman.

I got knowledge to share and love to give, regardless of their gender.

Raise your kids so they don't grow up to rob us all.

The problem is that there are not enough bold people out there ready to break with tradition .

Everyone acts like there fathers who were like there fathers who were like their fathers, be4 them.

Its all about what will people say.And not what do i want.

I don't want children, but If I did, it must be a boy. He must learn the wisdom of the ages.

to me it doesn't matter if it is a boy or a girl that comes first because we are not God who gives children so we have to be grateful for the one he gives to us

Well all depends on God.

I will take whatever God gives me.

But I pray I have male and female children.

Two boys and a girl.

It doesnt really matter whether i have boys or girls. I just want children. Family name my Bottom. Dem dey use am collect money?

Girl child is ok. Most africans don't want the family name to cease. In that case your daughter could get married and still bear your name. Its possible. So waz d fuss?

Anyone i get...Ok by me. But i'll really want a mixture. 2 boys & 2 girls.

Heh.......this is interesting! but let try and know that weather it is a boy or a girl, try and lay a good foundation for your kids, because the stone which the builder rejected might become the chief coner stone of the hosue.

@ Makgod, you totally get me.

@ Seun, by bringing me joy in my old age, all I mean is that I want them to grow up to be well adjusted, happy adults as opposed to menaces to society. Their happiness is what is going to bring me joy. I realize that kids grow up, develop a mind of their own and that any attempt to live their lifes for them will only lead to heartache. It wouldn't matter to me whom they marry, what they do for a living(as long as its legal). As long as they are happy and fulfilled then I'm happy.

agree with seun partially...

dont u think a wise parent will love his child 4 d child.

the existence, and the uniqueness...?

its not only about the child being great or being what u hoped.

every child is unique to d parents, weather good or bad.

a mum will still prefare to take the bullet dat is mend for her armed-robber child.

In practice it tends to mean more than that. What if you look at your children and they are not exactly what you wished they could be? Isn't this the reason for much of the "domestic warfare" we have today?

cool one from seun...but u know kids naturally is like joy to parents.

i think wat justimoi means is that at ur old miserable age ....when u look at ur grown ups , u get happy again, knowing they came from u.

Joy in your old age? Well I have discovered that whatever expectations you place on your children to make you happy would probably only lead to dissapointment in the end. My duty to my children will be to teach them all they need to know to make themselves happy; that's all.

All girls, all boys or any mixture would be fine. All that matters is that they be healthy and bring me joy in my old age

Girl or boy it doesnt matter all that matters is that u have a baby u can call your own.

Africans like baby boys cos they carry the family name along with them unlike gals that will get married,they answer either her husband's name or her husband's family name.

Both sexes are just perfect for the family.

I prefer to have a male child first before a female child.

In fact I will like my last born to the only female.( 2boys, a girl)

Yeah, you can say it doesn't matter but I bet you it would matter to your wife if you have only girls, she would never feel secure or comfortable with the fact that she doesn't have any boys.

Personally I think girls are more caring than boys, they know how to pamper their parents while boys would only send money and wouldn't have time for other activities.
