Parents should be extra careful in cases of girl. She should be taught to stay away from boys and men and made aware that how boys and men can take advantage of her. Also it is important to keep the activities of girl monitoring constantly and make sure that she has made good friends. Most of the times girls are spoiled because of bad friends so it is important that girls are always in good company.

It is very necessary to pay right attention to girl child. It is important to provide right kind of nutrition to girl child and make sure that she is healthy and secure her future. Most of the parents do not pay attention to the health of girl child due to which she has to face problem in future.

People in India distinguish a lot between girls and boys. Some Indian families are very unhappy when girl child is born it is not correct to distinguish girl and boy. Girl child should get equal rights as compared to boy child. The norms of Indian society should be changed.
