Fathers Are Better Than Mothers… Discuss For/Against.

Earlier I had seen a topic in my daughter’s notebook about roles of family members. Father’s pay school fees and buy’s clothes E.t.c while Mummy’s role is to cook.

Misconception:Children

I see and hear mothers asking for food or things to give their children that will make them fat. When my sister had her baby, they tried everything to make her add weight; no matter what she ate, she never added rather she got stronger and very fresh. I do not really blame those who want their children chubby because that’s the accepted norm for healthiness as seen by most. My children are usually chubby while being exclusively breastfed but during the transition between breast milk only to food with milk, they drop (as in drastically), two of them added over […]
