A lot of attention is given to raising strong girls, and rightly so. If the #MeToo movement has taught us anything, it's that our daughters are growing up in a society where sexual assault and harassment are all too common.

However, it would be a mistake for us to put the responsibility solely on the shoulders of parents of daughters. Mothers and fathers of sons need to do their part in bringing up kind, sensitive, respectful boys.

It's no easy feat to raise conscientious young men who respect women and girls — especially in a culture of toxic masculinity — but it's not impossible either. And the impact of our efforts on all our children cannot be underestimated.
