...and Having a Daughter Who Can Think for Herself is Better than Having a Daughter who Blindly Obeys

I can't remember a time when my parents didn't ask my opinion on matters. They still do. When I was a kid, this was sometimes a burden. I knew they took to heart whatever I said, but it taught me to think things through carefully.

Now that I have a daughter, I want her to know her voice matters. I also want her to know sometimes mine has to override hers.

It's not always easy, raising a daughter who has strong self-worth, but I think it's the most important thing I'll do this time around.
