Bisola Aiyeola Shares On How She Navigates Motherhood As A Single Parent, Criticism She Faces Over Her Parenting Style And More

Bisola Aiyeola, the Big Brother Naija reality star and actress, shared how she navigated motherhood as a single parent and her parenting journey.

In a recent episode of “Mums Next Door” with Maria Chike, Bisola addressed the criticism she faces over her parenting style.

In the rapid-fire segment, the TV personality confessed to being judged on her parenting choices, revealing her 15-year-old daughter uses a laptop for schoolwork but doesn’t have a phone.

She also playfully admitted to judging other moms herself. The mother of one disclosed that she has been judged for not allowing her daughter to have a phone until she turns 16.

Despite facing criticism, Bisola stands by her decision, noting that her daughter can access a laptop for schoolwork and communicate with friends via Zoom.

She also recounted discovering her daughter had created a smart chat account on her laptop, which led to extending the phone ban by another year.

She said:

“Yes, I have been judged by my parenting skills. So, my daughter turned 15 this year and still doesn’t have a phone. I have been pretty strict with that part of her life, and she begged.

I told her she wouldn’t have a phone till she was 16, so she still had one more year to go. And people have been asking me, like, what if there is an emergency?

Wouldn’t she be behind her pairs and all, but she has a laptop for school work? If her friends need to talk to her, they can call her on Zoom. Sometimes, people feel like I am overdoing it, or I am trying to be overprotective, and I am like, well, that’s your business.

“There was a time I found out she opened a smart chat account on a laptop, and I was like, how? I disciplined her, which made me extend her phone usage by a year because she was supposed to get it this year at 15.”
