This is Why…

I’m a Dad of daughters. I constantly look for ways to grow and develop in them the qualities that will help fuel their success, their balance, and maybe most importantly, their own belief in themselves as they become young adults and then eventually well-adjusted, confident adults who are involved and actively contributing in society. I read and loved this post from Ruth Bader Ginsburg on her thoughts of ways to support the growth of these kinds of qualities. Full article linked below; the short version is:

  1. Foster a love of reading
  2. Teach them to be independent
  3. Encourage them to seek out great teachers
  4. Encourage them to turn a deaf ear when needed
  5. Encourage them to set aside their worries — and simply achieve
  6. Teach them that they can make their own luck
  7. Pray that they marry the right person
