1. At birth
Celebrate boys and girls the same. Love them and give them equal opportunities. As they grow, teach them about their rights using the child rights convention.

2. Language
Replace " boys will be boys" to
" boys will be responsible"

3. Replace
"boys do not cry" with boys do cry and it is ok"

4. Avoid stereotyping
Through colour coding boys as blue and girls as pink. Let children wear what they want.

5. Check what toys you buy your boys and girls what they teach them.
