  • The list above is good. Don't forget to laugh often and don't take yourself and teach her not to take herself seriously. To many women do. Good supportive bras and heals when she is ready. have fun with it. Give each other manicures and pedicures and do each others hair. If you don't know, get a book on braids that helps with the cute girlie look. Also when I was younger I was told ladys sit with there angles cross not there legs, I of course crossed my legs. Sorry if I veered off course. I have two little girls, enjoy yours. If you have any other girly question feel free to ask.

  • I was never much into hairstyles until I was older and have learned a lot of tips and tricks off of youtube. I bet there is a ton of things they can teach other than just that too!

  • My mom was the same way, but I learned everything from my friends and people around me. If you want her to learn, but don't know what to do yourself encourage her to hang around and sleep over her friends houses. That is what I did. Once I turned 16, I started working at the mall at a clothing store (where I gained a fashion sense) and then Sephora (where I learned about make-up and skincare). If the girly stuff is her style, then she will pick it up naturally. I hope this helps!
