Great ideas on where to look to find positive role models for our daughters instead of negative role models like Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan.

Helping Our Girls Find Positive Role Models

Happy “Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work” Day! I don’t know about you guys, but I have vivid memories of participating in this as a kid – back when it was just “Take Your Daughter to Work” Day. It always got the wheels in my brain turning – asking myself who did I look up to, who and what did I eventually want to be?

So I thought today would be the perfect day to share with you an article I wrote for eHow on finding positive female role models for our girls.  I’d love it if you’d check it out and weigh-in on the topic!

Thank you so much for sharing this. After a day with my six year old and lots of eye rolling I needed this. I love all the strong women you mentioned. In our family we have a theme about our brave ancestors. We talk about it constantly to give our children a sense of belonging to great people who did great things and simple things with great courage and integrity. Can you write an article on how not to raise a mean girl? Everyone seems so sassy and bossy. How can we raise girls who get along with other women. Who are fine taking direction and giving direction? How can we teach them to look for the good in others? To forgive? To speak kindly? But not be a push over? I. am officially rambling but I would love an article on that too!! Hahaha thanks again for this.
