|Reproduce What You Can Cater For by MajESTHY(f): 9:01am On Sep 20|
It's high time couples give birth to children they know and can cater for.
It's not a thing of joy to see a child of school age going from one family to another as a househelp,nanny,baby guardian etc..
Some are promised to be sent to school which they are not.
Some are promised to be paid which they are not.
About 98% of them are maltreated.
Some are later sent home with sackbags.
couples and prospective couples should try as much as possible to keep their children under their care.
The sight and stories isn't a nice thing.
They're too young for such life.

Do not make this a mere thread, put your money where your mouth is
Draft a law proposal
Limit birth per family to a certain number according to taxable income the parents makes
Make a proposal to legalize abortion

Tell that to your government officials not me.
This is my own little way of creating awareness.

I guess your own little contribution might just end somewhere buried on Nairaland dead thread
|Re: Reproduce What You Can Cater For by Berrityga: 9:24am On Sep 20|
How many of this children are you catering for? Yes Nigerians fucccck and give birth like dogs especially the poor once. But I’m your own little way try and help. I have three street children that I’m training in school. Still have one that her man drove her out with her baby I’m currently taking care of the child. Another one that the guy denied the pregnancy I’ve been following the girl to hospital and standing like the father of the child🎈. Sometimes this women are deceived into having kids and sometimes things don’t turn out the way they planned you don’t expect them to throwaway the child.

That's if other people here have your wacky reasoning.

You are very right.
No one should rush into marriage just because your body is in need of copulation.
Rather, prepare financially, emotionally and mentally for marriage and it's responsibilities. And when you finally made the decision, give birth to the few number of kids you can confirmably care for.

I was telling someone the other day that this is the root cause of generational/multi dimentional poverty in Nigeria.
Some people just give birth indiscriminately without recourse to how they are going to train these kids.
These kids end up being used and abused by others.
Some of them are already breadwinners of their families at a tender age. Doing all sort of things to make ends meet.
Give birth to the number of kids u can take care of. It's as simple as that. Nobody is saying u should not get married while earning a low pay but if u do, then u can give birth to one child and zip up. Train that one child to become someone who will be beneficial to u and society.
In saner climes, couples give birth to one and they are okay. In Nigeria, people would say "what if the child dies and you are left with no offspring ?" then so be it. Life is meant to be enjoyed. You can't be giving birth like rat because u feel if anyone dies, then u still a replacement.
Also in Nigeria, people give birth like rabbits because they are looking for a male child. 1st child female, 2nd child same, 3rd same....ahah..u no go stop? When ur salary or income can not support them.
And when u ask these set of people why they kept birthing even when they have reached their threshold, they would say that they need a male child to continue the family bloodline. So that their name could be remembered.
The question I ask them is "who knows ur family name?" can u remember the name of ur great great great grandfather ?
It is not by birthing multiple times that a man retains his name but by distinguishing himself in whatever he does. People like Albert Einstein, mendelev, socrates, plate, Isaac Newton, etc are relevant today because of their work which have improved our society. Their work outlived them and their families.
So it's time we change the mentality that children are a gift from God or u must birth a male child because of that u end causing problems for ursef and the society at large.

MajESTHY:Na to begin by arresting and shaming all those who keep those kids as househelps and then fining parents for sending their kids out as child laborers. We know enough now to be sure that this evil must be stamped out.
|Re: Reproduce What You Can Cater For by Kobojunkie: 3:46am On Sep 21|
Berrityga:So, you think that while doing absolutely nothing about the ones who continue to breed like dogs, we should instead take to caring for the kids they continue to produce.. that is your approach to the problem? So while you are busy schooling their kids, you basically their parents up so they can continue to pump out more babies for you to take care of for them, no be so? Na wa ooo!

Illiteracy and superstition is another side to this. We have a large population of people to who the concept of family planning is either inaccessible due lack of literacy or active discouragement of family planning due to superstitious beliefs.

Are you normal? Your brain can't comprehend what an awareness means? You breed negativity or what?
|Re: Reproduce What You Can Cater For by Ensa777(f): 7:22pm On Sep 21|
Yesterday I met a child of about 6yrs backing a baby of say 3 months with wrapper which was already falling off.My heart was leaping as I rushed to help tie it firmly.
I was livid;at the parent who gave out a 6 yr old as help,a stupid mother who'd risk her baby.
The girls head is filled with hairinfcetion including the baby with sores all over her body.It was so obvious even the guardian no get.
I will buy fulcin and topical cream and go back to find her then give her guardian a piece of my mind.

I don't have to start telling you things on this.
Those around me know me and what I do in my own little way.
You should think of what even motivated me into making this thread.
|Re: Reproduce What You Can Cater For by MajESTHY(f): 12:44pm On Sep 25|
That's what most of the them refuse to understand.
"God will provide" is what is killing them.
