Emma Roberts is sharing her thoughts on how she wants to raise her baby boy.
"I want him to be respectful and intelligent at school but also in life," she shares. "What it means to be a man is being rewritten right now and I hope my contribution to the world can be raising an amazing boy who turns into an amazing man."
Roberts, who shares her son with ex Garrett Hedlund, adds that she wants her son to "feel that there's nothing he couldn't ask or tell me."

PEOPLE confirmed last week that Roberts and Hedlund have called it quits, with sources sharing that the pair broke things off a few weeks ago, following a rocky few months in their relationship.
"It's sad, and they are trying their best to co-parent. It's been hard," an insider said.
The pair's split comes after they celebrated their son Rhodes' first birthday last month with a rodeo-themed party.
"Loved every second of it. I love you Rhodes," the proud mom wrote at the time.
She and Hedlund, 37, whom she began dating in March 2019, welcomed Rhodes in December 2020 and then shared the baby's first photo and his name in January. "Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right," she wrote. "Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund."
Roberts previously opened up to PEOPLE about how her mindset has changed since becoming a mom. "That was definitely the most eye-opening, having a child," she said last July.
"Where before, I'm operating in the world on my own and I'm just kind of thinking about what's right for me. And when you have a kid, it's like, wait, how old is he going to be in the year 2050? What's the world going to look like?" Roberts explained. "For me, I definitely wanted to educate myself more on what I should be doing."
