Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We were blessed with quality family time, and that can be a rarity in a college coaching household.
I took a moment (many moments) to soak it all up.
In those moments, I often think of Jada and how soon she will become an older sister.
More often, I think about what I want my daughter to be…
Ultimately, I want her to be a STRONG person when she grows up.
Strong embodies so much more than pure, physical strength.
Because she is a girl, I’m much more cognizant of the adjectives I use around her. I don’t want her to be defined by looks and automatically categorized as weak, shy, submissive, or fragile simply because she is a girl.
I want my daughter to be confident in her choices. Think outside the box. Be creative. Who says paint needs to stay on the paper?!
I want my daughter to ask questions, explore, create, and simply play!
I want my daughter to be kind to others, but hold her ground when someone is disrespectful.
I want my daughter to have the strength to stand up for someone else who needs help.
I want my daughter dream big, set goals, and believe in her abilities.
Most of all, I want my daughter to love herself as much as we love her!
As parents, we want the best for our children. What lessons do you remember your parents teaching you?
