A while back I wrote about knowing self-worth, I also wrote about being classy. Now that we have covered those it is time to cover what some of may have missed. As a mother of young ladies, it is important that they understand their self-worth and their value.
Teaching young ladies about the ways to love them and focus on the important things of themselves. Encourage them with any dreams or wants that they want to achieve. Making sure that the rising queen understands how to love themselves inside and out. No matter what their physical appearance understanding they are beautiful no matter what. It is our jobs as mother’s, aunt’s, cousins, etc. to make sure we are encouraging these young beautiful ladies and let them know they are beautiful. When they learn to love themselves no matter what it builds so much self-confidence that they never have to question their ability to achieve anything that they want.
I have an awesome friend who has a beautiful daughter that is albino and she is so gorgeous, and many children do not always understand about her being albino. the relationship that her mother is building with her she is very special and awesome and is important that her daughter knows and understands who she is and that God made her special. she loves the skin she’s in, my friend is transforming a princess into a rising queen. (You can find this beautiful girl and her beautiful mother on www.JazmineCasado.com) Being a supportive mom and a open mother minded mother allows so many awesome things to come about with the rising princess that you are raising.
Do not ever tell them that they can’t do something, even if it seems impossible to encourage and find a way to help them navigate their aspirations. College is not for everyone, this something is very important to understand the time that I was raised in, you were supposed to go to college and if you didn’t go to college you would never be able to be successful, which is not at all true. As a mother, you know what child can go off to college some children are better at a skill such as cosmetology, culinary, construction, trucking or even automotive. Believe in your child, if your child wants to be an astronaut allow your child to read about planets etc.
Remember lead by example, even when you think your daughter is not watching you, she is watching you. You have to remember what you display or delivery they will mimic, from the way you dress, walk, talk, etc. I never thought it was important for my daughters to see me graduate from college, but many people encouraged me to walk across the stage, and they saw me do it three times it has had a major impact in my family. So, make sure you lead by example.
As always let’s talk discuss leave comments etc.
