Sweet Parenting: Tips for Raising a Confident Daughter

We all live in a real world which is challenging, and as compared in the past, children today are lucky because they have the comfort of modern life has to offer, but they also face a lot of struggles. We always hear about bullies not only in school grounds but also in social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Teenagers are currently exposed to different kinds of pressure such as peer-pressure, parental pressure, online influences, studies, gender issues, and matters about self-confidence. As on the part of your daughter, she is the greatest treasure of your life, and it is essential for every girl to have the self-confidence to accept who she is, what she looks, unleash her talents and inner potentials, and explore the world with kindness, humility, and passion.

Your daughter’s self-confidence can be ruined just because of few nasty comments from bullies and even from her friends. Your daughter’s emotional development is greatly influenced by you because, in your daughter’s formative years, she looks up to you as her role model. Boost your daughter’s self-confidence by encouraging her to speak her mind, share her ideas and opinions even if they are controversial, and not to be afraid to express her thoughts and emotions in a positive and acceptable way. It is just fine taking safe diet pills if you are overweight or obese just to help you in shedding some pounds but don’t be too obsessed with your appearance because it is not a good quality for your daughter to follow. Teach your daughter about the value of having a kind, patient, and good heart, and that looks are not as important as having a kind heart because appearance is only external. Always praise her good traits, her intelligence, and her amazing talents. Guide your daughter properly about the people she emulate, and remind her that following famous celebrities is totally fine as long as they are good role models.

Today, a lot of teenagers are inspired and motivated because of the idea of superstardom as watched and seen on reality tv. If your daughter want to sing or dance, by all means, encourage her talents but remind her not to lose track on her academics, to be responsible, and pursue her dreams with hard work and patience. Have a heart to heart talk with your daughter by asking her what are her plans and aspirations in life. Set an open communication within the family, and don’t be too overprotective to prevent your daughter from hiding important matters you need to know as a parent.
