A Nigerian lady has written that fairy-tale books should be removed from children’s library as it adds nothing of value to them.
The lady identified as Lucia Thioma argued that children of that age are not yet programmed to understand anything on romance and so should not be introduced to such.
She rather suggested that they should be allowed to read books on start-ups, entrepreneurship and science.

Honestly I feel all fairytale books should be trashed from kiddies library. Little girls have no business reading about a man who will climb into their castle with their hairs nor a frog that will kiss them to become a prince. Let them read about romance when their brains are fully matured biko.
What happened to science books and easiest ways to understand mathematics and history and politics and how to manage money, how to build an entrepreneurial spirit, how to build a business from scratch, self confidence for pre teens, how to take care of the elderly, how to treat people, why bullying is bad, etc.
Fairytales are why a female student will stop school to follow a Male student/musician around like a headless chicken…its why they think they are not enough and need a Male figure whether as spiritual father or glucose guardian.
