Desire for a male child, why many parents preference son refers to the attitude that son is more important valuable than daughter? The net utility of having a son outweighs that of daughter, mostly parents are likely to prefer son over daughter. A complex interplay of economic and social factors determines the benefits and cost of a child. In many culture, a male child is more important than a female child, male carry the family status. How can one child be more important than another, it takes both males and females to create life so both are needed equally in the society.

There is big concept of ignorance and unawareness, in Islam there is no hypocrisy in children, Islam strictly prohibits and it’s against the moral values. Our Holy Prophet (PBUH) said “Whoever had a daughter born to him, and he did not bury her alive or humiliate her, and he did not prefer his son over her.” All children are blessing and gift of God to be grateful for and equally treat well.
