What do you tell your daughters?

I tell my daughter that she is beautiful but I also tell her that she is brilliant, which is just as important, if not more important.

I tell her she can conquer the world and no one can take her brilliance away from her. That she should never be afraid to show the world how strong and smart she she is.  I tell her that she should never let a man tell her she is anything less than perfect and one day she will find a man that admires her strength, and intelligence more than her beauty. I also tell her to never settle for someone that doesn't make her smile when she thinks of them.

I tell this to my daughter on a regular basis.

I want her to grow up strong and independent! I want her to find happiness in herself and not feel she needs to seek approval from those around her. To be confident in her own skin.

What do you tell your daughters?

This is my beautiful, smart, strong and talented daughter.

I tell her much of the same things. Right now she is into Monster Trucks & I tell her she can drive Monster Trucks one day if she wishes. I even show her that some of the drivers ARE women (like the drivers of Madusa, the scarlet bandit & monster mutt dalmation). 

Here she is. All tutu and trains hehe

My daughter's on the right track, she already has my smart mouth. I tell her only you can chose how to live your life, I can't make you into something your not.

We have always told our daughters....and sons....how kind, polite, loving, loyal, friendly, and caring they are.  We focus more on these things than on the physical or even mental.

I read something once...

Girls that are NOT told they are beautiful or smart as they grow up...often seek men/boys that do tell them that...hence the first boy that comes along (often in high school). So, it leads to girls getting into relationships too early with boys who simply said they were pretty.

On the other hand, girls who ARE told they are pretty dont fall for the first boy to come along and tell them they are pretty. They tend to wait longer to get into serious relationships.

Dont know if it is true, but I tell my girl she is pretty. I dont want her to fall for a boy in high school, get pregnant and then not go to college.
