Megan has never been shy about creating a progressive environment for her kids at home. She consistently encourages her family to be who they want to be and she has worked hard at cultivating a safe space for her kids to never feel judged in her presence.
However, as a mother, she can only do so much to protect her kids from what other people might have to say. One of the most significant disadvantages of being a celebrity like Fox is having your personal life openly broadcast to the entire world. And her children have not been spared from the harsh words of trolls and haters. Most notably, her son has been subjected to constant negativity for his choice to want to wear dresses.
A Progressive Mother
The former Transformers star currently has three children. There is the 9-year-old Noah, 8-year-old Bodhi, and 5-year-old Journey. Fox has always been open about the fact that she enjoys motherhood and that she draws maximum fulfillment from it.
And one of Fox’s main philosophies as a mom is to allow her children to explore themselves however they see fit. She doesn’t want to pressure them into being or acting a certain way so that they can discover who they are on their own.
In a recent interview with Glamour Magazine UK, Fox has opened up about this unique philosophy of hers and how it has allowed her kids to be who they truly want to be.
She talked about how her son Noah occasionally likes to wear dresses and how he has been doing so for a long time. However, Fox has also lamented about how she has tried her hardest to protect him from the harsh words of trolls on the internet.
“Noah started wearing dresses when he was about two, and I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is. Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want.”
It was noted that the 35-year-old actress started getting emotional talking about this issue to the reporter.
“And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality. So from the time they were very young, I’ve incorporated those things into their daily lives so that nobody feels like they are weird or strange or different.”
While social media has done a lot of good for people all over the world, it has also been the source of a lot of hate.
“That’s also why I don’t really put my children on Instagram or social media,” says Fox.
At the end of the day, her kids aren’t doing anyone harm, and Fox claims they shouldn’t be subjected to such negativity from people on the Internet. What would you say to Fox and her kids regarding this? What would you say to the people who are making fun of Noah? Comment your thoughts down below.
