Podcast Episode 162: The Modern Family’s Guide to Feminism Part 2 — Raising a Feminist Little Princess

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 162 of The New Family Podcast where we talk about how to raise girls with feminist values.

This is the second in a two-part series that’s taking a look at what feminism means for families in 2017. We’re exploring where feminism stands today and what it means for raising great kids. In this episode, we talk about a bit of a perplexing issue related to raising girls. My guest, writer Devorah Blachor, is a committed feminist who was surprised to find herself the mother of a princess-obsessed toddler. Deborah wrote about this experience in an article for the New York Times that went viral, called “Turn Your Princess-Obsessed Toddler into a Feminist in Eight Easy Steps.” That was the jumping off point for her new book, The Feminist Guide to Raising a Little Princess: How to Raise a Girl who’s Authentic, Joyful and Fearless — Even if She Refuses to Wear Anything But a Pink Tutu. Devorah shares how she’s been able to find some good feminist messages from among the princess stories and how you can do the same.

Devorah’s Favourite Parenting Advice

“The best piece of parenting advice I’ve ever received wasn’t necessarily about parenting but it was something that helped me so much with parenting, which was to accept things as they are and to try to surrender to the moment as much as you can. Because when you go into parenting you try to control things and it never really works out. Of course, our job as parents is to guide our kids and try to give them the tools that they’re going to need but as much as you can just accept things the way they are, surrender to the moment and things can flow in a much more holistic and positive way.”
