// And though she be but little, she is fierce - Shakespeare //
Raising a daughter in this world is a little scary.
I am still trying to work out who I AM, let alone trying to install characteristics into this young girl to grow into.
The best I can do, is to try to lead by example.
As she grows, I need to put my fears aside, and somehow show her how to be confident and brave, compassionate and honest, kind and caring, and to just be a good human being.
To teach her to always choose kindness over judgement, to choose honesty over deceit, to choose compassion over blame.
In this world we live in, there are many ways a child can be influenced, good and bad. As a parent, YOU need to be the example, YOU need to be the guiding light that will shine over your children’s lives as they grow.
Yes it’s daunting, yes it’s a big responsibility, but it is one that can change the world.
