I am working hard to raise decent men.
Are you?

  • I am. Hopefully he won’t follow the example set by his father though. My son, by the age of three would open the door for his older sisters who were unable to due to their disabilities. I think he’s emulating my father who, after 46 years of marriage, still loves & respects my mother with a passion that inspires me daily. I don’t know how it is that I chose what I did when I had a shining example like that.

  • Meggsie

    I am indeed Mrs Woog. I am also raising my daughter to not accept bad behaviour from men

  • I know I am. These quotes are horrifying and it saddens me how recent they are. Keep up the good work Mrs Woog. Your boys are very lucky to have you. Jx

    Doing my best and mostly succeeding. It’s a battle when they’re constantly bombarded by misogyinistic crap like the above examples. Every time I think we, as a society, have moved on, some idiot opens his mouth and says something so stupidly offensive that I despair.

  • Michelle

    I am trying. His father sets such bad examples, I wonder if I’m fighting an uphill battle…. Thinking about how much he disrespects me sometimes makes me so sad, I wish he had a decent role model. Guess that’s my task, find one.

  • yes indeed.
