A Boy or a Girl? Does it Matter?

GENDER INEQUALITY Gender Bias in Parenting
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?

Yes i do agree there is gender based inequality. I was so surprised when my mom in- law was so keen on having a baby girl. People wish for a boy because they think they r the bearer of their family name and that girl child is always going to be someone’s else.
I hope in this century girls get their due

Both child are equal. I am 3 month old baby girl mother. I have only one child. My husband and me both think only one children is sufficient for me. After listening I got a baby girl I was very happy although she is my first and only one child.

Having a girl is a blessing who is emotionally attached and understand everyone as she grows, where as boys may or may not... Some people are of the mind set that they bring up the girl and send her to someone else's house, so it a sort of loss where as son will look after them in their old age.

No difference except physical appearance. As a good logical parent definitely should give education to there kid's no matter boy or girl so till education completion expenditure is same. After that as a parent of new thinking should think if we grow up our kid's with good behavior n good character then boy or girl doesn't matter at all they know how take care further. So no more worries our main job is till education n teach them how to be good human.

Why to judge your parenthood based on gender? Think about those people who can't give birth to either due to some issues.
