Our culture is so toxic that more and more young women are suffering from a growing list of problems-from low self-esteem and anxiety to depression and eating disorders.
What is the answer? It is not a “what” but a “who.”
Mom, you have been a huge help to your daughter in navigating the world which is always against her. An effective way to do that is to be a good listener. Your daughter is more likely to share her heart with you than Dad. So, be with him as much as possible. Her emotions can be unpredictable, and she doesn’t want to talk when it’s most convenient for you. He can open in the morning or later in the evening. Take advantage of his willingness to talk when he is in the mood.
Above all, look in the eye and listen. Allow your daughter to say what’s on her mind non -stop. Do not end his sentences or tell him how he feels. Before you give advice, listen first. In most cases, he needs to be heard more than he needs guidance.
What else can you do?
