What you say to your child shapes their perspective towards things in life. As parents, we should speak to them in a manner that helps them to grow, and makes them feel supported.
By telling your child, "That’s only for boys/girls" - You are limiting them to what they can and cannot do based on their gender.
By saying, ""Brave boys don't cry"" - You can make them feel like they are wrong for showing emotion.
Every parent needs to allow their child to be able to express and pick what he or she is the most comfortable with. #mindfulparenting
