My Comic Guide On How To Handle Gender Expectations As A Parent

I’m an ordinary salary otter from Singapore, and I love to create content about family, psychology, and most importantly, understanding each other.

My wife and I had an important talk about us and our son and how to parent him. At the end of the day, a little shift in mindset can make a powerful difference in our children’s lives.

When we focus on who they are, and not society’s expectations, we’re creating an environment where the next generation can be themselves and love themselves.

Empathy is a trait we’re constantly asked to have, but it can only be utilized when we truly understand how people see the world from numerous angles. For the Gender Expectations post, I drew on personal experiences, conversations with friends, and insightful articles to create a more nuanced and measured comic. This has no agenda; it’s simply about understanding the pressures all of us face because of gender expectations, and how to make it better.

Tradition is just peer pressure from the dead. You think you should live a certain way because other people think they should think you should... And in the end, nobody cares, but everybody cares because nobody knows that nobody cares. Simple.
