Jaime Pressly Interview: Teaching Boys To Respect Women
* This takes just a minute to load, but it will! :)
I LOVE what Sharon Osbourne and Jaime Pressly have to say about raising boys who will eventually grow up to be men. I absolutely agree with Sharon Osbourne's idea that it's fine to love your sons and be close with them like a mama bear, but at the same time...ladies out there who have boys....you've GOT to teach them that it's ok to be a mama's boy, BUT that they must also have respect for other women and treat them with the utmost respect that they'd give their own mothers. I also like how Jaime Pressly describes the way that she's teaching her son to have manners and respect for girls. What I don't agree with, however, is Jaime saying that she believes part of the reason grown men who are close with their mothers don't treat their girlfriend's or wives with respect is because they have seen a strong woman and just automatically think that all women are like that. I think that's a little bit of b.s. What I do believe, however, is that certain mothers out there relish the idea that they're the most important woman in their sons' lives and that they don't mind at all how poorly their sons treat other women....even if they don't want to admit that or if they're not really aware of it. So, the moral of the story is that it's fine to be close with your sons and have a special bond with them, but for the sake of all the women out there and in order to stop men from abusing women (because abuse comes in many forms), mom's, PLEASE teach your sons to not only have respect for you, but to respect ALL women and to treat us all like ladies!
