10 Ways to Raise a Daughter Who’s F.A.B. (Focused, Authentic & Brave)

  • Comments Off on 10 Ways to Raise a Daughter Who’s F.A.B. (Focused, Authentic & Brave)

I talk a lot on the blog about the role fathers play in teen girls’ lives.

There’s no question that girls who have a healthy relationship with their fathers reap the “(DAD)vantages.

But today, I want to focus on the role mothers play in teen girls’ lives.

Because girls who have a healthy relationship with their mothers enjoy (MOM)entum in life. (I know it’s cheesy but work with me here). wink

Remember at the beginning of this school year, when I shared the 10 things every teen girl needed for Back2School (and for life), that you wouldn’t find on a supply list?

I even included a special download for your daughter called 10 Things Every Teen Girl Needs to be F.A.B. (Focused, Authentic & Brave).

Today, in honor of Mother’s Day, I have something just for you!

10 Ways to Raise a Daughter Who’s F.A.B. (Focused, Authentic & Brave):

  1. BUILD Her Confidence.
  • Focus more on her gifts & talents rather than her appearance. And enroll her in extra-curricular activities where she can excel.
  1. GUIDE Her in Setting Goals.
  • Help her find her YES! If she has a YES, it will be easier for her to say “No” to anything or anyone that might hinder her from reaching her goals.
  1. HELP Her Learn How to Say No.
  • Teach her that No is a complete sentence! Not just in romantic relationships, but even with her friends.
  1. ENCOURAGE Her to Choose Her Friends Wisely.
  • Make sure she has healthy friendships with girls who make good choices.
  1. EQUIP Her to Have Self-Respect.
  • Show her what it looks like to respect herself.
  1. EMPOWER Her to Embrace Her Individuality.
  • Help her understand that she won’t fit in with everyone—but the GREAT ones never do!
  1. CHALLENGE Her by Setting High Expectations.
  • Teens will live up or down to your expectations, so set your expectations high.
  1. PROVIDE Her with a Male’s Perspective.
  • Have a trusted male give her the scoop on how guys think.
  1. TEACH Her How to Set Boundaries.
  • Give her boundaries so she’ll know how to set boundaries for herself.
  1. SHOW Her Unconditional Love.
  • Become fluent in her love language and make sure she knows your love is unconditional.
