Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I raise my daughters to be little mommies.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I'm raising my daughters to be good home makers, good moms, and good wives.

I'm raising the boys to be good providers, good dads, and good husbands.


That's how I think it should be and it saddens me everytime I read or hear otherwise. My most important goal in life is to be a good wife and mom. I think there would be better people and less divorces in the world if everyone did as my family does.

It's sad that you are doing that to your girls, but if it works for your family. You should encourage your girls to be all they can be, not locked into just being a "mommy" or "wife".

I am curious, what if they decide that isn't the life they want for themselves??

 I am raising my daughter to be able to take care of herself, to get her education and career before she gets married and start a family. I am also teaching her that there are no male/female jobs to do in the house, we all live here, we all can do it. My boys are the same, only don't live with us.

My dad taught us a long time ago that if you live in this house, you will help keep it up. He even taught all of us, (my brothers and I) how to maintain a car, yard and house. My kids will/are learning the same.

I agree with you, OP. Also, I believe there would be less divorce if women were SAHM's and men were providers.

*I do think it's wise for males and females to be able to do all kinds of things like cook, clean, change a tire, etc....you just never know. But I think the world would be a better place if men and women did what they were designed to do.

Well there is nothing we can do but it's just something I highly encourage. We still have savings for the children and if our girls choose, they may spend it on college and be working single women for the rest of their lives . I just hope they pick the right(imo) path

Good for you! I am doing the same. I haven't gotten to much of the teaching with my little boy though (he's 10 months old). I feel that you can teach your children these things while also teaching them that they can be who they want to be. Just because you teach a little girl to be a good mom, wife, and homemaker doesn't mean she can't have a career. I feel the same way about boys just because you teach them to be good fathers, husbands, and good providers doesn't mean you don't teach them how to care for themselves.
