The MOST RESPONSIBLE things for parents to do is to teach whatever values they choose, but to also “keep it real” and not ignore things in the hopes that they just won’t exist or happen. It’s difficult to change stereotypes that have been around for decades or centuries perhaps.
Talking to our kids with honesty and allowing them to open up to us is the BEST way for us to protect them and INFORM them. But, the one thing that you can control is your own behavior. Iranian men get a bad rap for being male chauvinistic, abusive, possessive, jealous, insecure, hairy, fixated on jokes related to bowel movements, and it goes on and on.
