My question is about parenting etiquette.
How do we raise boys to respect women? I have a hard time being around children, especially disrespectful boys. I’m not saying boys should behave more like girls, I’m asking how to get boys to treat women better?
- When babies and toddlers throw food on the floor or don’t put away their toys and mothers or women caregivers clean up the mess, women perpetuate the message that they are there to clean and tidy up.
- However, after a day of work, grocery shopping and getting children ready for bed and school the next day, most of the time it is easier to not make a fuss and we clean up the mess ourselves.
- To quote Gloria Steinem, “I’m glad we’ve begun to raise our daughters more like our sons, but it will never work until we raise our sons more like our daughters.”
