Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 161 of The New Family Podcast where we talk about raising boys in feminist values.
For this week and next, we’re taking a look at what feminism means for families in 2017 in a two-part series called the Modern Family’s Guide to Feminism. We explore where feminism stands today and what it means for raising great kids. For this episode, part one, I’m joined by accomplished business person and mom of two Paulina Cameron, author of Canada 150 Women: Conversations with Leaders, Champions and Luminaries. Although Paulina has done so much for the advancement of women through her advocacy and now this book, today we’re actually going to talk, among other things, about what it takes to raise boys with strong feminist values. Paulina shares her thoughts on the crucial elements of bringing up boys with a strong sense of equality, and why this is an invitation for all of us to bring forth our best selves.
Here are some resources related to this episode.
Paulina’s Favourite Parenting Advice
“This also reflects what I’ve struggled with the most, and that is simply stepping away and asking for help. So knowing I do not have to do it alone, that raising a family and raising children is certainly the work of communities and that’s how we’ve done it before. That taking a moment for myself, taking a moment to reground myself, re-find myself and know that I can ask for that kind of help will serve me, will serve my child, will serve my marriage and our family really well.”
