I made my 6 years old son to walk in the shoes of the less priviledged- Toyin Lawani


For my son’s 6th Birthday shoot, I made him walk in the shoes of the less~priviledged for a day.
We sold fruits to people and hawked in traffic, few people recognized us but didn’t care.
He didn’t stop asking me questions when we got home.


Anytime we drive past kids and I give them money, he’s always saying why this, why that. Now he understands.

Mother and son

Life isn’t rosy all the time!
For those of us with pot bellies, blessed with abundance of jellies, observing table is not our thing.

There are others unlike us, with flattened
Tummies tossed to and fro hunger-driven, beaten by the reality of our lack.

For those of us unlike them, born with silver spoons shouldn’t forget that circumstances and predicaments are cousins, we must teach our kids never to look down on anyone because they are more privileged. As Parents, we should teach our kids how to accommodate others with love.
