Raising Confident Daughters Day 1: Open Up Conversation

Posted by   + Show Post

Self-esteem doesn't mean feeling good about yourself all of the time. People who have strong self-esteem are able to recognize and understand their feelings. It's important to be able to talk about things with your daughter when she's happy and when she's down.

Sit down and talk to your daughter about what bothers her and what makes her proud! What is your daughter most proud of?

She is so proud of her achievements in school but more importantly the sports she plays. She's extremely competitive!

 And what do you do when your daughter is unwilling to tell you what makes her feel bad or good?

 She is proud of her grades, her art work and how protective she is of her younger brothers.

 She is proud that her self esteem and self image aren't hanging on the opinions of other people anymore. She is confident in who and what she is now.  She has come to realize that listening to what other people say with their opinions is a prerogative that she can exercise at will, that she doesn't have to believe their words and attitude, if she feels their not worth believing in.

People who are ignorant bother her and being able to ignore them makes her proud.

  Well, just so you know, I have been there a few times myself. You just keep trying, trying in different ways at different times but never ever giving up.  She will eventually tell you something. And something is better than nothing. Then, eventually, she will tell you more.  Little bits here and there.  You might try telling her something that no one esle knows about yourself. That might help her feel comfortable enough to say something about herself in return.
