From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy, if she so desires, to have open conversations with her about clothes. make-up and sexuality, debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can 'allow' women to have full careers, Dear ljeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century.
It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.
Dear Ijeawele is the ultimate parenting Blueprint, not just for mothers raising daughters but also sons.
This 61 pages book - so small that it can be read at a single sitting- offers fifteen practical suggestions with practical examples for raising children to be individuals rather than gender-halves.
