Recently I have seen many of my friends are raising their daughters like princess. And treating sons like- it’s okey! ‘You’re man!’ ‘Man don’t cry’. With this choice of words Taking their emotions for granted..(that’s another topic on which I will write up on soon, but today let’s talk about rising girls)
I am not against if they are treating their daughters like princess and yes even I do believe that daughters are very precious and special gift to you.. but Don’t raise your daughters like your sons. And sons like adults from very tender age.
As I believed Womanhood has it’s own beauty. If you are the princess of your father, your man, some one’s son is also the prince of parents. don’t expect only that only male of the relationship to tolerate all stupidities all the times.
It’s not always the men’s duty to leave seat for a senior citizen. If you can tolerate ‘menstruation’ and ‘pregnancy’ then traveling uncomfortably becomes a small thing.
Let your princess Work hard, lift weight, let her do her tasks alone, let her gain knowledge about more and more fields, let her walk alone with confidence and let her push her limits. Don’t let her learn to beg for the equality, but make her understand how to establish it.
Teach her not to create a hell for other women around her. Tech her To respect mother-in-law and treat her daughters-in-law like her own daughters.
On other hand teach your kids to not label a woman or man with simple clothes as ‘behenji’. Western clothes don’t make you superior or slut!
If wearing shorts is a choice then wearing Burqa/Saree /Hijab/ Salwarsuit can also be a choice. Stop judging others by looking at their appearance.
You are strong enough to hold your bags and walk in a sunny day. Don’t behave like a touch-me-not.
If you can earn money then you can spend it too. Don’t depend on your husband or boyfriend to pay all your bills. He is not an ATM.
Remember, Your knowledge of brands doesn’t make you modern, but your education does.
Fair skin is not a privilege but the intellect is. Rather than being a wife of some rich man, you can be a sportsperson, a writer, a doctor, an engineer, businesswoman and what not!
Lastly, I end up with if you’re blessed to have girl child try to make a girl understand from a very tender age this very important lesson for a life
“Boldness is more beautiful than the beauty. So be strong, be bold!”
