Megan Fox wants her kids to express themselves without boundaries.
During an interview with Glamour U.K., the 35-year-old actress talked about the way she decided to raise her children, Journey River, 5, Bodhi Ransom, 8, and Noah Shannon, 9. Fox talked with them about gender identity and encourages them to be confident in who they are.
She claimed her children aren’t as connected to the internet “the same way most kids are.”
“So they know that their parents are famous, but their knowledge of it is very limited. I knew when they were very young, I wanted to try to protect them however I could, especially limiting their exposure to the internet. So far, we’ve done a really good job and we maintain their innocence in a lot of ways, but I know I can’t protect them forever, though I do have a child that suffers,” she continues.
“So I have a lot of worries about that, because I just wish that humanity was not like this,” says the actress. “Although my kid is so brave and my child is so brave and I know that they’ve chosen this journey for a reason. It’s just hard as a mom.”

Fox also revealed that her son “started wearing dresses when he was about two.” Soon after that, the actress says she “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,” she continues. “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,” says Fox, who shares her sons with ex Brian Austin Green.
