In an interview with Glamour, the actor Blake Lively revealed a word that is taboo in the Lively-Reynolds household.
Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds have two daughters, James and Ines.
Speaking to Glamour, Lively explained there is one word they refuse to use in front of their daughters (beyond the obvious profanities).
We’ve joked that my daughter is bossy, but my husband said, 'I don’t ever want to use that word again. You’ve never heard a man called bossy.'
There would never be any negative connotation for a man being a boss.
So to add negative connotation on a woman being bossy? It’s belittling.
And it doesn’t encourage them to be a boss.
So do I know how to be the best parent for a daughter? No, I have no idea. All I can do is share what I’m thinking—and learn from others.
Reynold's other parenting tips are some of the best.
