“Motherhood is the exquisite inconvenience of being another person’s everything.” —Unknown
In the future, your daughters may introduce you to my sons, whom they will describe as loving, God-fearing, educated, kind-hearted, leaders, and go-getters. I take great pride in raising my sons to be goal-oriented and striving individuals, and I will ensure that they embody these qualities.
As a mother, my main responsibility is to raise men who are in tune with their emotions and capable of feeling the full range of human experiences. This is a gift not only to them, but also to their future partners, children, society, and the world.
Rather than teaching boys to be tough, we should focus on cultivating compassion, care, sensitivity, love, and kindness within them. This will break the cycle of men silently suffering under the weight of their pain, and will prevent the glorification of toughness as a badge of honor. No more.
Mitzie is a passionate supporter of women's rights and education. Her dedication to empowering women is evident in her participation as a panelist and keynote speaker at numerous local and international forums that focus on female entrepreneurship and business.
