The businesswoman and mother of two wrote;

“I have two children. Male and female. 24 and 22. I brought the male up to know he has no right to anyone cooking or cleaning for him. He has his two hands. I also brought the female up to know that she has not right to anyone paying her bills. She has a brain.
