Parenting is no easy job. It even gets harder when you are in the spotlight because with fame comes public scrutiny. It is thus no surprise that celebrities have often been judged harshly in the court of public opinion for raising spoiled kids.

Well, it seems the story might go differently for socialite Cameroon Gitawo. The South Africa based Ugandan socialite seems determined to accomplish the herculean task of raising a well-disciplined son amid temptations of his lavish lifestyle.

Cameroon Gitawo with his son Chris Junior

This comes after he opened up about his parenting goals on social media. In a social media post, where he is seen hanging out with his son, Chris Junior, in the backyard of his home in Sandton, Johannesburg, he revealed that he is grooming his son to be a responsible member of society. “My mission is to make my son a well groomed dude,” he noted.

Can he accomplish this? Only time will tell.
