Raising a child isn’t easy and they can be a handful, not to mention when they become teenagers. And when you raising a young beautiful lady like Ayanda Borotho’s daughter you can’t help but hope you’ve done all the best and that they’ll always remember your teachings.
One other thing is that there’s no right formula to parenting. The actress who is married to a doctor has three children with the oldest being Ayaphiwa Ngubane who is going to varsity this year. The mother and daughter duo once took us through an episode based on gender-based violence where they recounted the harassment they have received in the hands of men.
Ayaphiwa then admitted that she was more concerned about her safety on campus than her results. She also recounted the time she ate grass to pretend she was mentally ill, to avoid the advances of a man.
“I will never forget. I was walking back to my grans house and this guy had followed me there and back, basically demanding my name and number … I didn’t feel safe. There was a veld in front of me with straw grass.
“So, I remember going there and eating. I took a big nice chunk and ate it, and acted crazy so this guy would go away. That is what ended up happening, he left me alone,” the young lady said.
And now it’s time for Ayanda to let go of her lovely one, allow her to stay on her own and the anxiety that goes with it cannot be explained. Taking to Instagram Ayanda posted an adorable pic of her daughter and wrote: “Kuhle impela ukukhulisa kodwa ngathi isimo sesishube kakhulu🙈 Remember…you were TRAINED as a child, we TAUGHT you as a young woman…now we need to TRUST you as you become your own woman.”
