Mary Ajayi says parents should give their children good home training
In a chat with Legit.ng, Mary Ajayi said people who show so much respect have good home training.
"Parents should endeavour to train their children well. The generation of children we have now lacks respect for elders. Some would pass beside you and will not greet you. Calling someone 'ma' is a sign that you hold such a person in high esteem. If Simi says she doesn't want to be called ma, it's because the people calling her may be older than her. They are looking at her status as a celebrity and the level she has attained in life. She can't tell a ten-year-old to be calling her by name. So definitely the people she was referring to are much older than she is."
