Thank you to Keds Kids for sponsoring this post.
As a parent, especially one to a 3-year old toddler, I’m reminded daily about the pure innocence of a child. What and how she learns, her reactions, and the way she shows love is modeled through us before anyone else. We are her first teachers and our children solely lead by example. This is true in so many aspects of life, yet a huge lesson I hope to teach my daughters is the importance of women supporting each other and offering kindness and acceptance first. A lesson that will speak to them for their entire lives.
“Children are great imitators. So, give them something great to imitate.”
So, how do our children become women who support one another?
They witness YOU having strong female relationships, spending your time and energy nurturing those friendships, talking positively in front of them, and naturally raising each-other up. There is no better model to them than YOU, so be the person you want them to be.
I’ve had many friendships throughout my life and I have cared the most for them now knowing the impact it has on my children. Not only for them to have friendships themselves (hello, play dates) but the need for me to have positive relationships outside of the home. There is no greater gift than watching your child flourish and make friends, and possibly keep these friendships for years to come.
So, today… let’s stand up for women supporting women and raising little women to do the same by celebrating International Day of The Girl. This day exists to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face all over the world. It is meant to promote the empowerment of young girls to be authentic, confident, and pursue their dreams. Thank you to Keds Kids for promoting this initiative and believing in empowering girls to be brave, creative, and powerful.
Cheers to the girl gang!
