People Judge Me For My Parenting Skills— Bisola Aiyeola

Big Brother Naija (BBN) reality star and actress, Busola Aiyeola has spoken on criticism she faces over her parenting style.

Gatekeepers News reports that she made the disclosure during a recent episode of “Mums Next Door” hosted by former BBNaija housemate, Maria Chike.

Bisola revealed that she has been judged for not allowing her daughter, who is fifteen to have a phone until she turns 16.

Discarding the public’s criticism, Bisola noted that her daughter can access a laptop for schoolwork and communicate with her friends through Zoom.

Bisola further recounted a time she discovered her daughter had created a smart chat account on her laptop, leading to extension of the phone ban by another year.

She said, “Yes, I have been judged by my parenting skills. So, my daughter turned 15 this year and still doesn’t have a phone. I have been pretty strict with that part of her life, and she begged. I told her she wouldn’t have a phone till she was 16, so she still had one more year to go. And people have been asking me, like, what if there is an emergency? Wouldn’t she be behind her pairs and all, but she has a laptop for school work? If her friends need to talk to her, they can call her on Zoom. Sometimes, people feel like I am overdoing it, or I am trying to be overprotective, and I am like, well, that’s your business.”

“There was a time I found out she opened a smart chat account on a laptop, and I was like, how? I disciplined her, which made me extend her phone usage by a year because she was supposed to get it this year at 15.”
