Last week, my friends and family members came to my house for my baby-shower celebration, we had a great time, and lots of fun. And while we were at the celebration, i got into a discussion with some of my friends about how to raise a girl child, it made me panic. I cannot imagine my little girl being faced with a situation in which she has to be raised by someone other than me or her father, and there are still so many things I need to teach her. The only problem is, she’s much too young to understand half of what I want to say, so I decided I’d write out a list that I can give to her at a more appropriate time.
1.You are not better than anyone, and no one is better than you.
2.When people talk to you, LISTEN to them.
3.People will always remember how you make them feel or treat them. Never forget that.
4.Always take responsibility for your actions and apologize when you’re in the wrong.
5.Don’t gossip. Except with me. I love that stuff.
6.Download these music queens album Waje, Angelique Kidjo, Miriam Makeba and Asa.
7.Never judge people you don’t know unless you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.
8.NEVER use scented tampons.
9.Learn how to say “NO”.
10.Read lots of books.
More… To Come….
