Raising Girls Is Harder Than Ever These Days
The world bombards girls with distractions, false images, and questionable role models every day. It’s no wonder we are seeing so much depression, self-injury, and relational aggression (a.k.a. mean girls) in the women of tomorrow.
A Mighty Girl is a wonderful website that offers information and resources to girls and their parents to help them combat the media attacks they experience on a daily basis. Check out the mother-daughter relationship suggestions on how to keep this bond strong through the teen years and the child sexualization section that describes how our culture is encouraging girls to behave and dress in ways that are way beyond their years.
Girls are a precious treasure. We must protect their egos, sensibilities, and emotions and grow them up to have the inner strength to choose and carve out their own wise paths in life.
