Raising confident girls is first and foremost about giving them permission and encouragement to be themselves. Can you do that?
We were at a friend’s place a few days back for a weekend get-together. And a comment from a friend held my attention throughout the night and even beyond.
It led me to think of my daughter who is turning 10 in a couple of months. The ease with which she manoeuvred from a group of 2-3-year-olds to the teenager gang made me see a young grown-up girl ready to take on the world. So here I was resolving to have a candid chat on a lot of important life lessons with her.
I planned an outing with her the next weekend. We both went for an early morning walk in the park and after a few mins of connecting, I started my discussion with her. It was full of laughter, jokes and serious questions in between.
Here, I present to you the snapshot of the discussion, my key points on raising confident girls.
