10 Things Every Girl Should Learn from Her Mother

1. How to to pray, believe and develop a spiritual connection

I can only imagine how much I would have struggled had I not been introduced to God by my Grandmother and Mother.

Being rooted with a solid spiritual foundation guides us through all of life’s ups and downs.

2. How to love herself.

We must remind our girls how to value their bodies by eating right and cleaning properly, as well as how to choose potential mates wisely.

They should be reminded often that no matter what the world says, it is a must they love their hair, skin, shade, shape and every inch of their being.

Knowing who we are and what we bring, truly prepares us for this world.

3. How to treat others.

We all know life’s golden rule. It’s imperative our daughters live it as well.

This lesson won’t always have to be spoken because our children learn how to treat others by watching how we treat people.

We must teach them to be kind, honest and always keep their word.

4. How to show up in a marriage.

Another observation our daughters will make is how to build and maintain a love relationship.

If they are raised in a home where love and relationships aren’t honored and respected, they will probably repeat the cycle.

Sacrifice, respect and healthy communication are essential to any relationship and need to be taught to our daughters.

5. How to manage money, save and invest in herself. 

The greatest lesson any of us could learn is how to plan for our future.

Early lessons on the value of managing money will prepare our children for a healthy financial future.
