The above picture is that of a bunch of little girls holding hands at the beach facing the ocean waves. Alone they might be washed away, but together they stand STRONG. Sometimes my daughter worries me. I have only one daughter and a bunch of boys . Now, don't get me wrong, my boys worry me too, but there's a special worry for my daughter. She's only 7...Sometimes I feel as if I'm too hard with her. That I expect too much. I catch myself being a little bit more demanding with her than I do with my sons. Why is that? I love her just as much as I do with my sons !! I just feel like because she is a girl, that she's more vulnerable. Vulnerable to what? I don't exactly know that.. i feel as if I'm turning her into a perfectionist, and I definitely don't want her growing up having issues. I like to think that I'm instilling good values and ethics as well as principles into her. But when is it too much? I feel that she's more "impressionable" than the rest of my kids.Is that because she is a girl? When do you stop being impressionable and when do stop instilling the impression? I don't expect my daughter to be perfect..What I do do is emphasize how important it is to have a college education and profession. Especially being a girl. That having beauty is great but that's not all a woman should have and that's definitely not where a woman should stop..I don't know. All that I do know is, is that I want her to grow up able/capable and dependent on no one.
