Words About Raising Confident Girls

Posted by   + Show Post

Raising kids is hard...and sometimes, in those tough, tired moments, we just don't know what to say. I've muddled through an answer to the 1,293rd question of the day, and, as my daughter (finally) drifted off to sleep, I sat on the couch thinking about how I could have tackled it differently, more competently, just better. Turned it into a good solid moment to build her inner core.

It is in times like that when it helps to know others are in the Same Mommy Boat. That we are all doing our best. That we have all - say it together - been there, done that. Which is why coming here is is looking at some other blogs (like this one from Paranoid Stay At Home Mom about beauty) and sites to help us get our mommy mojo going again.

Huffington Post Parenting section - This is a great place to click over to as they collect some of the best parenting writers out there and put it all in one place for us. I love what Christina Pesoli had to say about gold medalist Gabby Douglas and all of that chatter about her hair.

Operation Beautiful - I like this site as it gives great ideas on how to inspire your girl, phrases, mottos, mantras to keep you and her going in the right direction.

Rachel Simmons - Writer, author, mother, speaker...she gives some fantastic tips for us moms. This post about her response when her 7-year-old daughter said, "Mom, I'm fat" is one we should all read.

A Mighty Girl - This website is all about giving us other tools to empower our little ladies. Lost of books, movies, special clothing all with one aim: to remind our daughters how being mighty comes in many shapes and forms and is in her, too.

Share the posts and sites you have read about raising strong girls!

Great sites, but I especially love the letter from the mom to the little girl who knocked her front teeth out. How many of us would have the courage to flash that big smile?

Thanks for sharing!  Need all the help I can get.  I know each generation tends to think the younger generations are worse than they were.  But it really does seem like bullying in the schools is only getting worse each year.  I love all the hint I find on CM to help my daughter stay confident.

 The Parenting Positive Kids group is great.
