Most times Patriarchy creeps up in our homes without us even noticing. The things we say and accept make all the difference. The intensions might be good but how our kids absorb the information is damaging.
I have politely smiled many times when I hear such things but now I don’t. I always interrupt and say “Like Mumma also” 🙂
I DECIDED A WHILE BACK THAT I WILL NOT SETTLE FOR THE CONSOLATION PRAISE PRIZE!
I make sure my boys see me more than just a mom who is running errands and raising them. I am woman who has a voice, creativity, courage and dreams. They see me drawing, writing and talking about what I do.
If you don’t take pride in who you are then you can’t expect others to do so. Smash Patriarchy. It always begins at home.
