Nigerian singer, Simi has indicated how she is raising her daughter, Adejare Kosoko.
In a series of tweets, Simi dished out some words of advice to women, who have given birth to girls just like herself.
Simi stated that a mother and daughter relationship is very important and that mothers should create a bond with their daughters such that daughters have absolute trust in their mothers.
And to mothers of daughters…we should aspire to raise daughters that know we’re their safe place. ‘Girls are daddy’s girls. Nice. But they must be mummy’s girl too. Even more so. There are things only you will be able to teach her. Nothing and no one is perfect. When she makes mistakes, listen and correct in love.
Remember that you too have messed up numerous times. Be the first person she wants to call when she’s in a bind. ‘Not my mum must not find out.’ To the mums already on this path, thank you. May we keep learning growth and unlearning nonsense.”
Simi and husband, Adekunle Gold welcomed their daughter this year.
