The fashion choices being embraced by female Kenyan teens was heavily debated on the Classic 105 morning conversation after one man castigated mothers for letting them dress provocatively.
He was of the opinion that Kenyan mothers never look at or question their daughters decision to wear some items,
‘What are we buying these girls? Are parents paying attention to what they buy? Their breasts and backsides are always displayed. How many times do you go to a club, see women only to find out later they are underage?
He was also of the strong opinion that teen girls emulate how they mothers dress and behave towards men. So if a mother dresses provocatively, her daughter will pick up queues that she should also do the same.
‘These girls physique is deceiving, they look older and even when they are with their moms, people ask if they are sisters’.
This thinking elicited mixed reaction from Classic 105 fans who either called in or tweeted tagging us online.
A caller said
Maina don’t blame it on the single mothers and the kids too because the moment you give them money hujui atarudi kama amenunua nini. What we can do as parents is, the minute your children turn to teenagers have a sit down and have that conversation.
Another listener added that
We live in generation where kids are in the club more often than in the church. This has nothing to do with the parents, its the society. We need to stand together as parents and figure a way forward.”
Maina,blaming single mums achana na wao they are special. I have been brought up by a single mum and my three sisters are to the point. They are good and sijawai ata ona any of them akiwa amevaa hivo mnasema. Single moms lecture their girls and are caring to their kids
#Mainaandkingangi don’t blame kids let’s start from mother’s coz wao ndio ununua hizo nguo..
Maina we live in a world where every negativity is blamed on single mothers, some have raised up good kids who are good role models to upcoming generation but some are a disgrace though
Parents are to blame here. They are soo busy doing nothing in social media themselves and by them giving kids smartphones, they want the kid to be occupied with it so as not to disturb them.
