New Mom, Yvonne Jegede, Has A Word For Families Who Can’t Make Their Parents Their Role Models

It is common for people to regard celebrities, strangers and even their church leaders as their role models, leaving their parents out in the process. Well, popular Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, seems to have a problem with this and has taken to social media to address this.

The super mom who welcomed her son, Xavier a few months ago, is of the opinion that people should not make celebrities or strangers as their role models as everyone has their demons.

According to the first time mom who had her first child 21-months after she got married to her rapper/actor husband, Olakunle ‘Abounce’ Fawole, people should rather make their parents their role models and if they cannot see their parents as their role model, then there’s something wrong with their family/upbringing.

She further advised people who choose strangers as role their role model to stop stressing others out concerning the mistakes their parents couldn’t fix.

The famous Nigerian television personality and film maker wrote on her Instastory:

”I have no idea why a total stranger is your role model (someone you’ve never met). People have their demons and life issues to deal with. But if there are some people who inspire your work, skill or maybe fashion sense I can understand.

If you cannot see your parents as your role model, then there’s something wrong with your family/upbringing. Don’t stress people out concerning the mistakes your parents couldn’t fix.”
