5 Things To Tell Your Daughter This Womens Day

Are you raising your daughter to be strong, confident and independent? What should you really be talking to her about—our proparent blogger, Neeta Kadam, shares her thoughts. Read on…

Inspire Your Daughter to Do These 5 Things This Women's Day 

Today is Women’s day and iIf you have a daughter, no matter what age she is, here are a few things you need to tell her, to help her grow into a strong and confident woman…

1. Don’t Conform:Traditional gender roles maintain that girls should wear pink, stay quiet, learn how to cook and play with Barbie dolls. You need to tell your daughter that it’s okay for her to play football if she wants to, to play with GI Joe’s, to like video games, and everything else that “only boys do”.

2. Do something that challenges you: Whether it’s a craft competition at school, learning a new language or taking self-defense classes, encourage her to step out of her comfort zone. This will encourage her to take risks and become a go-getter.

3. Be financially independent: It’s never too young to start! Whether teaching her to save her pocket money or setting up a bank account for her to manage, tell her that the only way to stand on her own two feet is by being financially secure.

4. Reading is important: Encourage your child to read inspiring women’s stories and let her realise that success doesn’t come easy. Tell her that she should start reading the newspaper everyday (that will not only build vocabulary, but will also make sure she’s aware of what’s happening in the world).

5. Make time for yourself: Let them know that if they’re doing something that doesn’t make them happy, it’s just not worth it. She should do what makes her happy, and should take time out to do it, whether dance or yoga or just reading a book. Tell her to set aside an hour daily to do what makes her happy by herself - this will build a great habit for the future as well.

Isn’t it time we made sure our girls stand on their own two feet? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!

making girls self-reliant is a big step and a crucial step in this direction.. marriage should come in the picture only after that.
