Teach them to understand their gifts, and to use them wisely. Each and every one of us, has been blessed with gifts that make us unique. Oftentimes, our children do not know how to hone in on their gifts, because of their lack of confidence. Ensuring your natural hair beauty feels empowered to be unique and accomplish goals, helps to discover and build her gifts. It’s about giving them the tools to do good for them themselves.
Empowerment is best modeled in the environment. Most learning comes from what’s demonstrated moment-to-moment. The opportunity to empower her is in your daily interactions. Parents are the best resource for helping their children thrive in the transition from childhood to adulthood. The thing about raising an empowered girl? She’ll know what to do because she will trust herself.
Here are 3 Ways to Empower Your Daughter:
- Her Needs Matter
Encourage your daughter to express her needs and provide opportunities for her to make decisions. Girls need to feel that their needs are worth just as much as others, even if they don’t get what they want. Help them tolerate disappointments. This grows from balancing self-care with caring for others.
- Don’t Carry the Weight of the World
Teach her the importance of remaining mentally fit, many times this means understanding the importance of not carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. We need to raise girls who understand that it is okay to ask for help.
- Nurture Her Self-Worth by Demonstrating Self-Worth
When adults share their feelings and own up to their mistakes, they are being great role models for their children. They are demonstrating the courage to be vulnerable. Validating your daughter's feelings is important.
Teaching and modeling is crucial. Supporting your natural hair beauty by encouraging her to be herself is the way of being. These exchanges between you will embolden your daughter and give her the confidence to conquer the world. Remember your daughter is unique. Create an environment where she is reminded of that consistently and she will be compelled to reach for the stars.
