Super Secret Ingredient For Raising An Amazing Daughter
There is one sure way to raise a great daughter but it may not be what you think.

Be the woman you want your daughter to be. Don’t say it just be it. Tell her you love her everyday and tell her specifically what it is you love about her. Point out her skills, her kindness, her intelligence, and how she is such a blessing to you and others. Be there when she falls, not to catch her, but to help her get up and try again. Let her fail and learn from it, don’t treat her like a fragile flower, treat her like the strong, amazing woman she will grow to be.
