Modeling Love for Girls

Modeling Love for Girls

FEBRUARY 16TH, 2021

This week we’re thinking about love! Love—showing and accepting it—is one of those things that comes easily to some people, but not everyone. As girls grow up we want them to love and respect themselves, their families, friends and communities. One of our favorite ways to teach girls is by walking the talk—showing girls with our actions, not just our words. This works well for love too.

Love for Her

Showing girls we love them tends to be easy for most families and caregivers. We show girls we love them every time we hug them, do an activity they’ve chosen or enjoy, or take the time to listen to them.

Love for Those Around Us

Children often watch how their family members and caregivers behave in different situations to learn how to behave themselves. It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day responsibilities and forget that girls are watching and inferring how we feel about family members, our community, and even people we disagree with. If you’re not sure she’s getting the right message, try asking her how she thinks you feel about someone. It can be enlightening and lead to a great conversation!

Love for Yourself

For many of us, our top priority is to make sure our girls love themselves. But we don’t always apply the same standard to ourselves. Sometimes negative self-talk is so natural we don’t even realize we’re doing it. As an experiment, try being mindful of what you say about yourself for a day—even when you’re alone. If you find you’re being hard on yourself, try releasing the thought or showing yourself a little self-compassion. This can feel unnatural and tricky at first, but can really make a difference for girls—and yourself!
These exercises can be challenging, but are totally worth it.
