Why not? When we devote time in training the maids on how to cook well, how to clean the house and on good mannerisms while leaving our own daughters untrained. We overwork the maids and they adjust with equanimity because they need us to survive. The maids turn out to manage the indignation and insolence we and our children subject them to. All these make the maids better wives who can manage even the angriest of men. Our precious daughters are pampered through nursery and primary schools. They speak the English we want and know all the cartoon slangs by heart. We beat the maids blue black if they ever ask our girls to help out in domestic duties. They see kitchen things as maids' things. The girls move from boarding schools to the university, do their NYSC, Masters and get a job. Of course, they are ripe for marriage and you wish that to happen soon. From one relationship to another, the same story. The guys would parade and dump them. They are only good in bed, outings, clubs and red carpet functions. The boys when they notice that the possible wife cannot cook, arrange things and are very domestically untrained. The rich guys can manage as they would mitigate the handicap by hiring a domestic help. Not all guys can afford this for a start. The upcoming and very sensitive guys who would make good husbands, fathers and leaders would not manage these parents' inflicted shortcomings. They would settle for well-trained ones. They know the value and the pride in hosting friends at home to delicious delicacies prepared by a wife. Not all your maids would remain your servants forever. Some of them would finally do part-time studies and like a train, get to their God ordained destinations sooner or later. Like a perfume, good guys perceive well trained wife materials from a far and dump the daughters of the multimillionaire like hot iron. - By Danjuma Iliya.
