I just read something on FB about how we need to teach out daughters this and that about men. Basically, the message was we need to teach them to be able to read a man and try to ferret out his intentions based on his actions, words etc. Good advice, but I think more importantly, we need to teach girls and learn ourselves, to spend more time getting to know ourselves, what we want out of life, education, career, etc. A relationship with a man and making children is no longer a viable career option (maybe it never should have been) We need to focus more on our own needs and wants (not in a selfish me me me manner) but in a way that we value ourselves the way we should. We do need to put ourselves first more often in our relationships, careers and with family.
