What about our boys?

Dear Life,

I have been thinking a lot about International Girls Day. As a woman, I totally understand and appreciate such an empowering day. I am so glad young girls are being taught they can do anything. Because they absolutely can. However, I am a mom to five amazing boys.

  I wondered why there is no day to celebrate boyhood, to teach what it looks like to be a strong, amazing boy that can do anything. As we teach little girls that they are in charge, that they can do anything, we might be changing the role of boys. As much as I appreciate an empowered young lady, I also appreciate young boys that are taught to be gentlemen, to be kind and sensitive, to work hard for their families, to know that they are valued and important. Girls can do anything.....and so can boys. Let’s empower all of our youth. Let’s teach them all how valuable they are, regardless of gender. I think then the world might be a better place.
