Here's a new segment I hope to make a "thing" for 2020. Some Wednesday wisdom. A quote, a thought, something useful to make us think for the better. (Plus, I should have written a book review, but I got lazy - Ray made really good enchiladas and I'm sleepy. I can't think and write - must go watch TV. So much for my resolution to watch less. Ha!)
So - from Gloria Steinem - The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off! 2019
When people say to me, "What shall I tell my daughter?"
I always say: The most important thing is to listen. This is how she learns she has something to say.
I am fortunate - my parents truly always listened. They did not have solutions every time, or they just made good suggestions. But they gave appropriate guidance. This is valuable in this day and age when kids/girls are bombarded by almost too much information.
Listen and give focused attention to what your daughter is saying. She will value your time and energy.
