What is the most important thing you can teach your daughter before you send her

    What is the most important thing you can teach your daughter before you send her out into the world?

    When your daughter graduates from high school or college, what are the most important things that you want her to know?  Please give 1-3 suggestions.

    The top three things that I want my girls to know as they head out into the world are;
    1). You are loved.  There is nothing that you can say or do that can change that fact.  Nothing that you can say or do that will ever make me stop loving you.  I may not like you sometimes, we may not always agree, but I will ALWAYS love you.

    2).  You are amazing, and you can do whatever you set your mind to.  If you want it badly enough, if you work at it hard enough, and if you believe in yourself enough, there is no goal that you cannot achieve.

    3).  Life isn't always fair.  Sometimes you have to improvise, sometimes you have to adapt,  and sometimes you have to overcome obstacles that are standing in your way.

      How beautiful, K. Burns.  This is a truly great message to give to your daughter.

      Three great choices that will undoubtedly help your girls succeed in many situations.

      There is a ton of stuff that I want them to know.... these three I have worked on daily from the moment that they were born.  Hopefully they will remember them when they are out on their own.

    I want my daughter to be confident in who she is. I don't want her to let other people dictate how she feels and what decisions she will make moving forward. Too many girls are so insecure in themselves and look to others for their self worth.
    I agree with K. Burns when she says that she wants her daughter to know that she is loved and that life isn't fair. These are also two very important things anybody needs to learn.

      Confidence is extremely important because it can make the difference between good choices and bad choices and  failure and success. Being able to lead your own life is critical. Excellent comment.

    We have one child, a daughter, and I want her to know...

    - That she can succeed at whatever she wants to do if she always tries her best.  It may not happen right away and it may not be the result she thinks she wanted, but it will work out.
    - I want her to know how to be independent and that it's ok for her to be a confident, independent woman. 
    - No matter what happens, I want her to know that she can always count on her parents to be there for her, good or bad. 

    I'll add what my Dad taught me hours before I went off to college 30 years ago.  He took me out to my car and he taught me how to change a tire.  I still remember what he said to me..."My daughter is not going off into the world by herself without knowing how to change a tire."  I think it was his way of saying goodbye to me.  And you know what...I changed one a couple of weeks ago as people walked right on by, staring at me in my skirt and blouse with a big tire in my arms.  Thanks Dad!

      Great advice.  I'm working on a hub about things every girl should know....changing a tire is on the list and so is being independent (being able to make your own choices).  Thank you for the comment.

      My dad also made sure that I knew how to change a tire, and how to check my oil.... my sister had a penchant for blowing up engines because she never knew when they needed oil.....

    I would hope that I would teach my daughter that she can have confidence in herself.  That's the most important thing to me, besides knowing she's happy and positive about life.
