How to raise a strong and confident woman from a cute little girl

It is abundantly clear that we cannot just wrap our own child in bubble wrap and protect him from all the snares of the world. But the fear is still there – lest he experience bullying, we fear that he will fit into the collective, we fear for his health, education, etc.

We want it to be happily ever after – so we roll up our sleeves and get down to ‘work’ as parents. We indulge in the best in an effort to give a good foundation in life. This is even more true about girls. We kind of instill in them that I can be whatever they want me to be. And when they succeed, we pride ourselves on building their self-esteem. We praise and support them.

“However, even though we want the best for them, we still subconsciously apply education somewhere so that the little girl grows up to be a good and decent woman. And that, according to many, means avoiding conflict. But this is just an imaginary stop sign that prevents our daughters from experiencing true happiness,” says American coach T-Ann Pierce on her blog.

“They need to know that they will still be beautiful and desirable even if they don’t just stand there and listen to others. That it’s not bad if they speak up, they won’t let themselves be manipulated and they’ll go after their goal just like men. That they don’t just have to fulfill the wishes of others in order to find true happiness,” he adds.

As he adds, the feeling that one’s behavior will please others (parents), and later in adulthood also other people, is nice, but even the pleasure starts to suffocate after a while. From the willingness to get along well with everyone, feelings begin to arise as to whether others are really happy. And if not, then behave so that they are.

The longer such behavior is practiced, the more each girl and woman will move away from their true selves.

How to raise a cute little girl into a woman who will not only focus on the pleasure of others, but will be strong and independent?

Make her a team player

In the case of girls, in particular, he somehow “makes sure” that they know that it is up to them to keep the household tidy and running. We subconsciously instill in them that it is their duty and they must do it. But that’s not good.

“Don’t tell your daughter you can’t live without her help. That he must unconditionally participate in everything. Give her independence as well,” advises the coach.

Listen to her opinion when she is angry

Let your daughter explain why she is angry and why she feels the way she does when she is angry. Part of raising an independent woman is living together and raising an independent girl who is not afraid to speak her mind. Don’t yell at her, don’t dismiss her point of view.

Appreciate her ideas, tenacity

Being able to appreciate or comment on things in life is part of a good education. However, you need to know what to comment on and what not to comment on.

Definitely don’t address her looks, weight, or food choices you don’t agree with. Your daughter needs to know that you love her just the way she is. Not what he looks like.

On the contrary, appreciate any effort or own idea that he comes up with.

Encourage her not to be afraid to take risks

Some parental protection is fine, but here too it is true that too much of everything is harmful. Don’t protect her from all physical and psychological risks just because she’s a girl. The more you allow her to take risks, the more courage and ability she will have to face the pitfalls of adulthood.

Let her solve her own problems

“As much as you can, let her figure things out on her own. Give advice when needed, but let her choose her own path. Don’t be the one to fix everything. Every girl needs a sense of control over her own life. Let her learn it (within reason),” Pierce explains.

Encourage her to set boundaries

Whether it’s friends or family, every girl should be allowed to expect that her space, belongings, and feelings will be respected. Encourage her to set her own boundaries – whether it’s sharing toys, favorite clothes or secrets that will be hers alone.

Teach her to behave properly

“Don’t let your daughter be just nice, quiet and polite. Teach her kindness, but raise her to be nobody’s doormat. Teach her to express herself and not be afraid to express herself. This skill can be very useful for her in the future,” says the coach.

Teach her to help in a healthy way

Allow your daughter to help — especially those less fortunate than she or her family. But don’t force her to help at the cost of her own happiness.

Enjoy time with your daughter

Offer your daughter the best you can. Be her light and counselor, but don’t project your fears or bad experiences onto her. Guide her to kindness, consideration and respect. After all, this is what boys should be trained to do.

“Unfortunately, it will probably take some time for girls to have more than just beauty and cuteness in order to not only grow their careers in a world full of competitive men,” Pierce concludes.
