Popular media personality and entrepreneur, Toke Makinwa has taken to social media to talk about why many parents can not tell their kids how much they are loved.
According to her tweet, she said that even when some parents are told that they are loved, the most they do is thank the child that said it.
Explaining further, the entrepreneur stated that most parents were raised in harsh and worse conditions which they have processed into life lessons.
She finished off by saying that such parents raised this generation the only way they know how to.
"So many parents couldn’t normalize saying “I love you” to their kids. Even when told that they were loved, their response often times was “thank you”. a lot of our parents were raised worse and thought those harsh conditions were lessons and they raised us only how they knew."

"You speak sense ma. The day my dad said he loves me, I was mute. God help me. it's hard to know when someone loves you."
"I won't blame them, cos that's how their own parents raised them. So, no love and they didn't know about that, that's why it's so hard for most African parents to apologise or say " I love u too " unlike the western countries. We need to teach them more of that."
