Most women will tell you that their lives changed when they entered motherhood. Having a child gives a woman the unique responsibility of raising them and becoming a balanced person. Raising a girl in a society where the media and stereotypes rule can be challenging. Keep reading the following lessons that every mother should be sharing with her daughters today if you want to see in your daughter a strong, confident and dignified woman.

14 Lessons Every Mother Should Teach Her Daughter

You want your daughter to grow up proud, confident, and intelligent, as well as caring and gentle. There will be many things you need to teach her so that she can face the world on her own.

Be both courteous and fanciful

All women must find a healthy balance between these two characteristics. Being polite is essential, but increasing that skill with a little cheek will ensure that you are never taken advantage of, and you can develop a wonderful sense of humor along the way.

‘Be yourself’

There is no one in the world like you, and it is a wonderful thing. If we can teach our daughters to love themselves and never try to be like someone else, then we as mothers are doing a great job.

‘Be compassionate’

I think this is a skill that should be demonstrated to our children. Show them great compassion, and they will learn to share with others. An excellent life lesson.


‘Have confidence’

Confidence is key in this world. Teaching your daughter to be tall and proud is one of the best ways to ensure that she will lead a happy life.

‘Don’t be afraid of failure’

Nobody likes to fail, but it is important to understand that failure means building great character and igniting a fire within a person, it can lead to even greater things than they could have imagined in the first place.

‘Is worth dreaming’

Eleanor Roosevelt once said “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” and we couldn’t agree more. We must teach our young women to dream, dream big, and never stop dreaming. It is our job to make them realize that they can achieve anything if only they can imagine and wish.

‘Educate yourself’

Only a small part of education happens in the classroom, there is much beyond those walls where we will receive more lessons. We will encourage our young women to explore beyond those barriers and seek learning in the people they know, places they go, books they read, and they go on adventures.

‘Follow your passion’

Everyone has a passion, but not everyone is encouraged to follow it. Plan to nurture your children’s passions, and create an environment in which they believe they can find the opportunity and support to follow them every step of the way.


‘Watch your health’

Promoting good health is absolutely essential. Encourage your girls to be active, eat well, and live as well as possible. Many of these other lessons will contribute to your emotional health , but we will be sure to promote your physical health as well. When both physical and emotional well-being are well taken care of, our girls have every opportunity available to them.

‘Be proud of yourself’

We are going to ensure that our daughters are proud, first and foremost, of themselves. Proud women are beautiful inside and out. Instill in them the pride of their family, history, home, choices and being. Without a doubt an excellent lesson in love .


This is an essential lesson. Simply put, a smile is the most attractive accessory a person can wear.

‘Surround yourself with amazing people’

Whether it is a small or large group of friends and family, we will encourage our daughters to surround themselves with only the best. People who love them, care about them, and have the ability to make them better people in a myriad of ways. Of course, our daughters must do the same with the people around them. When you are surrounded by caring for people, life is just so much sweeter.


Encourage your girls to travel. Whether within your own country, or internationally, the opportunity to travel creates growth and development that staying close to home cannot always deliver. Travel allows people to spread their wings, step out of their comfort zone, and expand their horizons in ways that can be life-altering in a more positive way. Let our girls learn about the world first hand; it will be very beneficial.

‘Try everything once’

This is a delicate point, but speaking it with our daughters correctly is enriching because, it is not precisely about trying absolutely everything, but considering the things that you want to try that will leave them good experiences, but within their own limits it is not easy. Doing so, be it for a person, a fear or uncertainty Encouraging them to try them even once will surely leave them with the experience, and that will make them richer in character.

There are so many responsibilities that come along with parenting, and for some reason, the responsibility seems even greater with girls. So most importantly, we have to model these characteristics for them so that they become confident, well adjusted and loving women.
