What impact do gender stereotypes have on raising boys? Parenting SOS with Kirstie Beaven Happy Mum Happy Baby

    • Kids & Family

On this month’s Parenting SOS, Giovanna sits down with Kirstie Beaven, Founder and Editor in Chief of Sonshine, a quarterly magazine all about raising boys in a more equal world.
Kirstie felt like the messaging around being a ‘boy mum’ was always one dimensional - it was all about stinky socks, dirty houses and muddy football boots! And so she was inspired to create a space that spoke about the many other aspects of motherhood, and provide resources that could help us as parents talk to our boys about gender equality.
Kirstie and Gi discuss the importance of encouraging emotional intelligence in our children and why we shouldn’t be afraid to challenge gender stereotypes. Plus Kirstie answers our community’s questions.
