Mom As The Gender Role-Model
The number one role-model for how a girl feels about her gender is mom. If mom is not taking the time to role-model what it means to be a woman them her daughter will attempt to find these answers in the culture around her. This can be very confusing. There are so many extreme definitions of what it means to be a woman everything from using your body to get attention to ignoring your femininity all together.
Mom must help her daughter find the balance of all that culture is throwing her way. She must help her daughter to understand that true beauty is found on the inside. Mom herself also needs to role-model self respect and modesty so her daughter can observe it. Moms have the awesome privilege of helping their daughters embrace and celebrate their gender. Take the time to enjoy it!
