Ladies aren’t the only ones who get packaged in detrimental messages to kids. Men absolutely get sold to kiddies as stereotypes and myths that can be hurtful and slighting to children of both genders. Because whether you’re raising a son or a daughter who will encounter one, the suggestion that all men are cold and unfeeling idiots unable to care for a child on their own assumes the worst of them. “Prince charming” tropes do a disservice as well as boys are told to maintain an unflinching masculinity in the face of any tribulation, no matter how much it actually hurts them.

So for the sake of your son, and the son of others, avoid these subtle yet generalizing jabs at the male sex.
