Strong Women, Strong...Boys?

Do you think that it is just as important to be a strong role model for your son(s) as it is for your daughter(s)? I have 3 daughters and no sons (yet) but I think that it is equally important for a boy to have a strong woman to look up to.

Absolutely!

My son  just turned 10. I am every bit a role model for him as his father is and as I am for his sister.  I believe boys learn how a man treats a woman by watching not only what the men in their lives do, but also what the women in their lives expect. I also think, however, that children see their adults not just as male / female but as individuals. My son does not just learn that a woman can be strong, he learns that a person can be strong. He does not just see how a woman can assert herself and demand respect, he learns how he can do so too.

Absolutely.  I have a daughter and two sons and I feel passionately that they all need to know what it means to be a strong person.  TI si also very important that they learn what "strong" actually means.  Some people don't realize that strength doesn't mean always getting your way.  It is about upholding your sense of self with grace and dignity even when things don't go your way.

I agree, I have an almost two year old and he is my everything. If he free up with a mother like I had, I couldn't live. I told myself I would never put him through what I went through. So I hope this group does support that

 I absolutely do. I have two grown sons and tried to teach them to be strong emotionally and respect strong women. I feel proud that they married strong women.

It is equally important. The relationship your son has with you will teach him how to treat women for life.

Definitely because everything he knows about women he will learn from his mother.
