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's highly matter -I'm the victim.
I'm a proudy mother of 18th months old sweet baby girl , bt since birth my close relatives made some insulting attitude &comments about my god gifted child.
Now they very casual & affectionate abot my child bt bt I never forget & forgive them which I do promise myself.

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

doesn't matter that it's a boy or it's a girl matter is that the baby is healthy

It does matter in big town also , whether your are highly educated and an illiterate, desire of having a boy doesn't mean you are narrow minded , small, town people , less educated. It's in very own mind , fixed from childhood in our mindset , that boys are assets and girls are liabilities . God!!
Some.people especially independent mother's are now taking steps forward and cudos to those mothers for raising there girls like girls not like ( I am raising my girl as boy , I mean why u have to raise a girl like boy . are boys better than girls so u have to raise girls like boys)
I feel like raise each individual an independent person , every mother should say I am raising her like her own independent, stong, kind , A GIRL ❤️

Yes. still in rural areas they think they should have baby boy as first kid. But i hate this thought process. Because boy or girl both are child only. I'll get irritated when ever they say or give ashirvad like u should be graced with baby boy.
