I have 2 dd, one is 13months, one is 6 years.
I've been thinking a lot recently about how to instil confidence in them as they grow so they can stand up for themselves, shout 'no' if they need to, not see the need to 'conform', be happy to be single etc. Thought I had ages before all this really started happening but...
my 6 year old came back from a party today and was very upset that 'I'm not going to get married because no boys like me'
There are 3 boys in her class and 7 girls. One of the girls and boys are 'boyfriend and girlfriend' and kiss (peck) on the lips
I can't believe they're all talking about this stuff at the age of 6. How do I teach her to value herself and not be thinking about this rubbish at 6 years old?!
