Davido’s first lover and mother of Imade (daughter), Sophie Momodu , has said being a mother, and parenting overall, is something she’s finding difficult.
She took to her Snapchat to seek the advise of experienced parents, as she’s finding it difficult to tame her daughter, Imade.
Sophie says, whenever she punishes her daughter for something wrong she did, she gets this feeling of guilt, and she immediately wants to hug her and tell her sorry, for punishing her.
“Everytime I have to spank my toddler or punish her for doing something wrong, I immediately want to hug her and tell her sorry.”, She wrote on snapchat
She continued; “Issa struggle to even keep a stern face, But I do it for the culture anyways. But then, I don’t want to raise a spoiled brat and I don’t want to be an overly strict mom either. This parenting ish isn’t easy!!”
