Nowdays its rarely seen like that because Parents are educated and broadminded. They give equal oppurtunities, chances, motivation, inspiration, encouragement to both girls and boys equally. But now also in some parts of our country, girls are treated unequally and are not given same status as boys. This thing is still prevallent in our country because uneducated people feel girls aren't trustworthy and one more reason is protectiveness and they don't even realise this protectiveness is turning very much over protectiveness.
Hope it helps!!!!!!!!!!!!
