Nollywood Actress, Omoni Oboli Admits She Wishes For A Daughter But...

The lovely Obolis
Nigerian actress and movie producer, Omoni Oboli is one of the highly sought after screen goddesses in this part of the world, a wife and also a proud mother of three boys.

In a recent chat with Sun Newspaper, she was asked what it really meant to raise sons as boys are more active than girls and think differently. She had this to say:

"Yes, I guess they do, but I don’t have anything to com­pare it with because I don’t have girls. So, I don’t know what it means raising a girl. Boys are very active and my boys are very boisterous but they are not destructive. I see some boys that are destructive, they come into your house, and you can’t just take your eyes off them because you are thinking ‘oh my gosh are they going to break the glass table, are they going to do this or that?’ But my boys are not that way. I think it is because we started our discipline very early. My husband used to discipline them a lot when they were younger, from like age two. He was constantly on their case, so we didn’t give them the chance to throw tantrums; it was not acceptable in my house at all. If you cried for something that you wanted, then you don’t get it. If you want something and you start crying for it, it means you have just told us you don’t want that thing, because you are never going to get it. So, we didn’t just allow them to throw tantrums. I guess it’s because we started early with the discipline thing, which helped in keeping them in check and not being all over the place and being so destructive. My boys will come to your house or your event and just sit quietly. If they have a game, they will play it and not just be running all over the place and be destructive. some boys that are destructive, they come into your house, and you can’t just..." she explained.

When asked if she would love to have daughters, her response was a simple one:

"I wish I could but there is no guarantee, so I don’t think I want to have another boy. But if there is a guarantee, I would have a girl," she stated.

The actress who has been married for 15 years is also of the opinion that spanking a child works.

"Yes I do, it works, trust me it works. The Bible says ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’. God knows what He is doing. You know you are not spank­ing out of hate, that’s a difference, but you are spanking the child because you want to correct them. My kids understand that there is a difference; they have understood from day one. Why am I doing this to you? Why am I spanking you? They will answer and say it is because I did this and it’s wrong. So, they know that is why you are spanking them. It is not because I don’t like you, I mean I can smack you and hug you the very next minute. But you need to understand that what you did is wrong and unacceptable. Kids keep pushing boundaries; that is their job. They know how to manipu­late you. So, you start it early," she advised.
