your absolutely correct even i have faced it.. i have two daughters and my sis has two sons.. my sis will always say them that when you grow up you both should take care of your sisters as they don't have their own brother. i'll say no need of taking care of my angles u just love them.. they can take care of themselves.. even my husband dont like gender discrimination..

This is true and happened to me. I have a son who once got interested in playing with Kitchen set and wanted it but my husband refused saying he is a boy and should play only with the toys meant for boys. I asked him why not? if girls can play with a toy gun why can't boys play with the Kitchen set. My husband finally agreed and my son became very Happy to have his new toy and play cooking for all of us like he drives us around in his toy cars!!

Very well written. Whatever the world thinks, as mothers it is our duty and in fact more than a father, to make our daughters strong enough to face any challenges in life. It is the home environment which will be the base for strong personalities of our daughters and not let any bias impact them !!

Thank you guys for showing your interest in this topic. It's very important to impart the right moral values in our children. Any wrong statement in front of your child can be a suffering in the future. I agree that most of us do have supportive family members and friends who do not believe in gender biasness but definitely there comes a situation or a moment some day when you get a sense of this biasness someway. It can be for you being a lady or for your sister or for your daughter. But it is for sure there. So it's up to us whether we live with it or take a stand to change it. Hope we make a better society seeded with equality and respect.

all parents should have this thinking,then only girls will become more strong. Girls are not less than boys,infact they are more than boys.

I really liked this blog... even I faced the same situation... as i am a mother of two girls,i feel proud... there is gender discrimination in many families... so many people around us should change their mind set regarding this.. I feel lucky to have a great family with me who never supports gender discrimination...

I agree with this and that's why after birth of my daughter I already told to my complete family that I don't want any discrimination in any terms neither color, taste, choices and toys and I m really thankfull that my family also agreed with this. however, I got surprised when in her school teachers are specially learning to the kids with sentence" I am a girl". I am really surprised that why it is required and not able to understand the reason as well.

it's right, now a days there is no gender discrimination. it's just thinking about it person to person.

thank you very much,, but yes, as u say, we need a lot of support at home first.. I have a boy, 5 nephews , but have 2 niece, who don't get equal treatment along with boys.. sad part is that, I'm the only one fighting for equality.. but the best part is , at least I'm there for them..
