A Boy or a Girl? Does it Matter?

A Boy or a Girl? Does it Matter?
A boy child & a girl child have been treated differently by Indian parents since ages. A desire of having a 'son' rather than a 'daughter' is still there in most parts of the country, especially the small towns! Do you agree with this ? Did you also want a 'baby boy' when you were pregnant? Why do you think our society has this preference for having sons & how can it be changed?

it really doesn't matters . for parents its a baby to whom they mould the way they actually want to. the cute little steps are always a joy move for thise who look at them . its all about our mentality nothing else. love ur kids . they are sweet little packets of happiness
