If you cannot cover your kids outside and scold them inside within the family what kind of parent are you? If you easily feed your kids to the vulture because of your entitled nature then you have not fulfilled your role as a parent ! Am talking from experience and I feel for Phyna because it’s not a great place to be mentally ,Some Parents can ask you for 1 million and you give them 999,999 it’s that 1kobo you did not add they will drag you for ! ….Look at him saying People think he is stingy is it your daughters money you want to use for Philanthropy?”
“You don’t know what God has done for you if you don’t have entitled and ungrateful family members. Sometimes, the relationships you make yourself (genuine friends) are far more important than the ones that you don’t choose( family).”
