hope-to-teach-my-daughter

I’ve lived many lives in my mere 31 years. Between experimenting with different types of religions, styles and um… men, I feel like I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge that I’m eager to share with my children.

As a woman, I feel like there are specific little tips and tidbits that I desperately need to teach my daughter before she’s all grown.

So Ari Jade, this is for you…

1.) Don't ever change who you are for a man. "Dumbing down" or faking intelligence for a guy can get super old and terribly exhausting very fast.

2.) Always remember: cleavage out?... cover your legs. Short skirt?... cover your cleavage. Don't give it all away. Leave something to the imagination.

6.) Your 20's are made to have fun and be single. Don't feel obligated to be tied down.

7.) Never let a man (or anyone else for that matter) tell you that you're not beautiful and amazing. If he does, tell him to go kick a brick.

8.) Find a man who loves, respects, and honors his mother. (That one's from your Dad.)

9.) The fact that a man opens doors or carries heavy bags does not make him perfect or "the one". Those features should come standard - like power windows on a car.

10.) Don't ever let a man convince you to prove your love by doing anything. If he doesn't think that you love him he's either insecure or... he's right.

    Great post! I have 2 little girls that are 3 & 2 and I think you hit the nail on the head. These are so true. I can only hope I am able to guide them in the right direction.

      Thanks! I was just thinking today of what a daunting task it's going to be to raise my munchkins properly. As long as I can keep them off drugs and out of the slammer I'll be ecstatic. lol. Thanks for your comment!
