Bring Up Respect (Gender Equality)

s parents, and as influencers of young people, we want the best for kids. We want them to have positive experiences, healthy relationships and opportunities to learn. We want them to understand right and wrong. We want them to respect others, and respect themselves. We do our best to set a good example, but sometimes, without meaning to, we might say things that excuse disrespectful behaviour in young people. It’s important we understand the cycle of violence. Not all disrespect towards women results in violence. But all violence against women starts with disrespectful behaviour. We can all help stop it at the start.
