Sometimes I think, if I was a boy, would they treat me differently?
Please, parents, children need your understanding and support. Not for you to create war against them. They need you to trust them. They need you to believe them. They need you to let them do what they do best.
I've made it a point to NEVER have children, because I would never want to treat my children that way. And if I DO have children, they'll always have my support even if I'm not happy with what they're doing, because their happiness matters most. As long as they're happy with what they're doing or what they are, I will be forever grateful to God for such blissful children. I'll never condemn what they're doing, because I love them. Their happiness comes first.
I would teach them the right things. I'd teach them to respect everyone, but to respect themselves most. Self-respect is the most important which shouldn't be sold to anyone. I'd teach them to stand up for others, to stand up against discrimination. I'd teach them to be forever kind.
Maybe that's what humanity is about, forever improving on what your parents were.
