Raising Girls vs Boys in Today's Society
Raising a girl in today’s world - is it different from raising a boy? Does it really matter?
I think it does.
In today’s world of conflicting messages I think it’s important to help a future woman find her path.
I believe in feminism. But not the type that diminishes men’s value or proclaims women to be superior over other humans. I believe in feminism that allows the woman to be who she is, whether married or not, with children or without, the type that allows for a woman to make her own choice, regardless of expectations.
That said, I believe that it is equally important to instill in a girl that she IS a woman, a beautiful flower that requires love and care. While life can throw stumbling stones on everyone’s path and things may shift from time to time, in general, I do believe that it is a man’s responsibility to take care of the family and his woman, and that is what I want my girls to know too. They can be all they want to be, but, unless they choose to have it otherwise per their own choice, a family is a man’s responsibility. Something that I teach my boys as well.
Do you want to expand the topic more?
What do you teach your girls? Do you think girls need a different approach than boys?
