Parents should not show any discrimination between the son and the daughter.Children are gifts of God. Having a child will give satisfaction to the parents. These days we see many couples struggling and undergoing various costly medical treatments to have a child.
A child can be a girl child or a boy child. The parents should not show any discrimination between the two. I have seen many families in which they feel having a son is a reward. They extend all the facilities and struggle hard to educate him. At the same time, they will not extend such facilities to their daughters. Such parents will not send their daughters for higher education. Of course, these days such discrimination is reduced a bit but not completely stopped. This tendency is more in rural areas than in urban areas.
I feel the governments should come out with some policies which will benefit the girl children so that parents will stop showing different attitudes towards the girl child. All should commit to this on this day of international girl child day.
