People often talk about how important it is to raise girls with certain values and beliefs, and with three girls I do agree. However, I also have a son to raise and feel it’s just as important to be mindful of guiding him with values and beliefs that are positive, as well as role modelling certain behaviours that reinforce how women should be treated. Being in a relationship with a man that also holds these values and role models them is also important. I hope all our children are able to navigate to adulthood with a strong sense of purpose and self esteem – to go on and achieve whatever they set for themselves.
What do you feel are the most important messages for young girls and boys to hear?
