10 Things For My Daughter To Know Before She Turns 10 :>

I love having a daughter.

It's funny to say that now because when I was pregnant I was so scared of the implications. Flashbacks of middle school girls. Girls in high school. Being a girl in college. Girls and being a girl after college. It was not easy. Not that necessarily being a boy/guy would have been but the idea of having to rehash and re-experience those lovely times all over again... it was kind of a scary thought and, admittedly, still kind of is, even though I do realize my daughter will not necessarily experience what I did. I hope anyway.

But I guess all parents feel that way— wanting nothing but the best yet realizing there is only so much one can do as parent to help their child(ren) along the their adventure through life.

I just stumbled upon this HuffPost Parents post, 10 Things I Want My Daughter To Know Before She Turns 10. Alternatively, it could have been titled, 10 Things I'm Still Working On... :> Either way, I love these parent-sharing, women-empowering -type lists. Reminds me of What Does It Take To Be A Great Dad?

Daughter or son, what do YOU want (or would you want) your child to know by the time s/he is 10 years old?

Share this post and your thoughts in the Comments below, we'd love to hear! :> :> xoxo
