Little kids are fond of crying on their first day in school, reason why @odenibo was surprised that his son didn't follow the trend.

Social media users flooded the comment section of the post and explained why the little man didn't cry.

Tweep with the handle @Kepler_banks commented:

"Can't you hear music? Baba sef dey dance. During our time, the sounds of one student crying following some proper lashing was enough to stimulate the tears."

Reacting to @Kepler_'s comment, @_Kelvinee_wrote:

"Swear this was the reason children cried a lot back then on their first day, schools felt and looked like prisons. Grey walls, sounds of lashing and children crying at every corner, why I no go cry??"

@Easerael_tweet reacted:

"When school sef set with nice music playing on the background unlike those school wey we go during our own time."
