I know many of you are blessed with a girl child. Girls are, as it is said Daddy’s Princess and Mommy’s world! They are little angels who grow up to be our best friends. A mother’s best company is always her dear daughter. Despite all this, when it comes to raising girls it becomes a challenge for us. Especially in today’s world when on the one hand girls are proving themselves equal to men in all fields and on the other hand they also face discrimination.

Here are 10 things which I want all girls should be taught from the very beginning in order to raise them as strong individuals.

Self-dependence

Girls must be taught to do all things themselves without being dependent on anyone. This should start from a very early age; say, when your daughter starts to eat, don’t run with a spoon after her. Let her play, spoil the food but do encourage her to eat by herself. Similarly, let her explore the world on her own. Don’t try to play her shadow everywhere.

Even though care & compassion are regarded as basic traits of all females still in today’s competitive world these qualities are sometimes relegated in a corner. So it’s very important that we keep teaching our girls to be caring and compassionate towards everyone. Being a good human being is always more important than being successful. Neerja Bhanot isn’t remembered for being a great air hostess but for being a great human being.

Honesty

Being honest is difficult. It takes great guts to take the blame and admit one’s mistake. But it’s very essential to be a strong person. So young girls must be taught to be honest in all what they do. This will also make your bond with your daughter a strong one.

Spirituality

Whatever religion you follow, you must make your daughter have a strong faith in that. She should be taught to pray regularly. Whenever she is in need, she should be taught to remember God. She also must be made to feel thankful to God for all the blessings in her life.

Fitness

Physically girls are considered to be weaker than boys. This does not mean that you should make them feel that they are weak. Instead, you must tell them how different they are from boys. They are delicate and beautiful but not weak! You can give some fitness training or self-defense training for your child to make her feel strong.

Politeness

Being polite is the winner’s trait. If you want your child to be a heart-winner teach her to be genuinely humble and polite to everyone. Even if you can buy all the luxury for her tell her these things aren’t in everybody’s luck. There are underprivileged kids too and she should be humble to the poor.

Share the Joy

From the very beginning, you should try to remove every kinda greed from your child’s mind. She should be introduced to the joy of giving. Show her how good it feels when a person shares his things with others. Make her give away a few of her toys, clothes, cookies etc on her birthday or some other day. Show her the happiness of the kids receiving these goodies. This will encourage her to be a sharing person.

Pursue a Hobby

Every child is unique and so are their interests. Whatever be the hobby of your child you must encourage her to pursue it. Singing, dancing, cooking, painting, acting, playing some sports, or anything else whatever it is you must appreciate your child’s talent and nurture it. This will work as a strong foundation in her life. Whether she makes a career in the field of her hobby or not but this will definitely cheer her up always!

Empathize with other Girls

Generally, it is seen that boys don’t have much rivalry and competition with other boys. They prove to be very good and reliable friends. But girls have a high level of competition and jealousy among them. That’s why it’s important that we teach our young girls to empathize with other girls and understand the value of friendship. They should feel the pain of other girls and try to help them instead of ridiculing them.

Proud to be a Girl

Last but not least I wish every mother teaches her daughter how special she is. She should be proud and happy to be born as a girl. Girls are different from boys in so many ways. These differences are to be enjoyed. Differences don’t make them superior or inferior to boys but do make them special. Tell them, boys, in fact, this whole world is incomplete without girls. They are the daughters, sisters, girlfriends, wives, mothers without whom no boy can survive.

God has given girls a unique role to play in this world and it is our pious duty to prepare our daughters for this role. Raise them with lots of love, care, and understanding; instill strength and confidence in them to face this world boldly on their own.

The List Of Things You Need To Teach Your Girl Child At An Early Age are boldly listed below…

1: Warn your Girl Child Never to sit on anyone’s laps no matter the situation including uncles.

2: Avoid Getting Dressed in front of your child once she is 2 years old. Learn to excuse them or yourself.

3. Never allow any adult refer to your child as ‘my wife’

4. Whenever your child goes out to play with friends make sure you look for a way to find out what kind of play they do, because young people now s#xually abuse themselves.

5. Never force your child to visit any adult she is not comfortable with and also be observant if your child becomes too fond of a particular adult.

6. Once a very lively child suddenly becomes withdrawn you may need to patiently ask lots of questions from your child.

7. Carefully educate your grown ups about the right values of s#x. If you don’t, the society will teach them the wrong values.

8: It is always advisable you go through any new Material like cartoons you just bought for them before they start seeing it themselves.

9. Ensure you activate parental controls on your cable networks and advice your friends especially those your child visit(s) often.

10. Teach your 3 year old how to wash their private parts properly and warn them never to allow anyone touch those areas and that includes you (remember, charity begins from home and with you).

11: Blacklist some materials/associates you think could threaten the sanity of your child (this includes music, movies and even friends and families).

12. Let your child understand the value of standing out of the

crowd.

13: Once your child complains about a particular person, don’t keep quiet about it.

Take up the case and show them you can defend them.

Remember, we are either parents or parents-to-be. “THE PAIN LASTS A LIFETIME”

Train a female child, train a nation” which is true and something I can attest to. When I was younger, it was my mum that gave me home tutorials to perfect my writing and reading. If she was an illiterate, she wouldn’t have been able to help. We keep talking about human rights yet the female gender is oppressed and not given opportunity to be educated. There are lots of female making waves in the society thanks to proper education. These are my few points.

If a woman is not well trained her children equally will be not well trained. The man cannot influence the children's upbringing as much as the woman does. So the upbringing and knowledge of a woman helps the generation to come.

I draw my conclusion and it is evident that, it is right to train a female child. It is not a waste of time and money. Train up your child in the way you want her to grow so she can become a better version of you. Thank you for reading this piece. Special gratitude to everyone.
