Are daughters more affectionate towards their parents?There is a feeling these days in many that a daughter will be more affectionate towards their parents. There were times when people used to think that having a daughter is a curse. Those days getting a daughter married was very difficult and middle-class families were suffering a lot as they have to give huge amounts as dowry to get their daughter married. I heard that in some families women were penalised if they deliver a baby girl. But slowly the situation is changed and now both girls and boys are treated equally and there is no such discrimination.
In many families these days we see the daughters are taking care of their old parents even though their brothers neglect them. Many daughters have concern for their parents rather than their parents in law. Maybe the influence of a lady is changing the behaviour of her male counterpart. I like to know the views of other members.
I think this topic is more pertinent to discuss on the international daughters day of this year that is today. Every year this day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of September month.
