“I don’t remember going through anything like this when I was in school, but it is so obviously necessary for our children, so that their little minds can begin to understand their thoughts, feelings and emotions and that they feel comfortable expressing them. “
Last year Emma expressed shock at the outpouring of support she received after sharing a photo of her son Ace wearing a pink top and long blonde hair.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain in October, the presenter said she was “overwhelmed” by the reaction, saying gently: “He’s just my son in a pink top”.
She continued, “For me that’s normal. He loves color, he’s always had long hair, he’s a free and intelligent boy.
“He said to me, ‘Why do I have to dress in green, blue and gray when I like red, pink and purple? It has always been like that.
She continued, “We are trying to bring him up as an open-minded and inclusive individual. There were some negative bits, but this is where the block button is great! ‘

A host of stars and organizations paid tribute to Children’s Mental Health Week.
Mood Bears, among many others, is a collection of colorful teddy bears designed to help young people deal with their feelings and emotions, with each teddy representing different emotions.
The brand has teamed up with the Papyrus charity to attempt to place more than 200 teddy bears in children’s hospitals in February as part of their new ‘Bear a Smile’ campaign, which is being launched on the occasion of Children’s Mental Health Week.
With suicide already the leading cause of death among young people in the UK, the number of cases has unfortunately increased over the past year.
The hope is that by providing a Mood Bear, which helps children understand mental health issues, it will encourage people in hospitals to communicate what they really feel with their parents and caregivers.
Already celebrities like Anthony Costa, Tessa Hartmann and Alex Murphy have lent their support by donating a bear with a personalized message.
