In commemoration of International Day of the Boy Child, experts have called for more attention to be paid to the boy child, saying they play a major role in the society, families, leadership, and institutions.

A Counseling Psychologist and Health Advocate, Mr Kayode Ajani, made this known while speaking with Pensioners FM Correspondent.

Mr Ajani advised parents to groom the boy child and the girl child equally as this brings improvement in society.

He said, “The society must understand that we must begin to pay more attention and devote more time into the development of the boy child, that is issues that affect the boy child, we must also discuss issue of mental health and also educate them on sexual related issues”.

Mr Ajani also noted that the boy-child conversation should be supported and paid attention to, as there is a trend of neglecting the boys who should be protected and cared for.
