18 Things a Mom Should Teach Her Girls

by Claire Minnaar

After posting about the 15 Things a Mom Should Teach Her Boys, I couldn’t resist putting the same type of list together for girls. My parents taught me a lot of these things and 1 or 2 I didn’t get (I can’t change a tyre!!), so here’s the list I’ve put together for you.

  1. She is beautiful just the way she is!
  2. She is enough and capable of anything!
  3. Good hygiene doesn’t have to take long. It just has to happen.
  4. Respect your body.
  5. Care about other people.
  6. Don’t let your circumstances drain your ambition.
  7. Never, ever expect a man to do for you what you can do for yourself.
  8. Be serious about your money.
  9. Friends are going to come and go.
  10. Modesty isn’t an old-fashioned ideal.
  11. Gossip is dangerous.
  12. Don’t be afraid to walk into a room alone.
  13. Trust your instincts. If it feels wrong, it probably is.
  14. Read often and much.
  15. Laughter can diffuse many a challenging situation.
  16. Block out the voices.
  17. How to change a tyre.
  18. Look people in the eye when you talk to them.

There is a whole lot more we can teach our girls, so just keep on teaching and enjoy every minute!
