Your children are sponges for knowledge. You have to teach them the skills that they will need to survive in the world. Your children look to many different people for inspirations on how they should act. Movie characters, people in music videos, YouTube creators, and anyone else that may catch their eye. They see how the character acts and associates that with how they should act. You, as a gentleman, should have already been teaching them before this happens. A gentleman should always be a beacon of how to act in any situation. You should be teaching your children the skills and concepts they need to be a gentleman themselves, no matter their gender.
