I’m so blessed to be part of an outstanding series on parenting daughters, hosted by my good friend Kaylene Yoder.
My post is about raising passionate daughters.
You know the ones…
they tend to behave like I describe in this excerpt:
She plopped herself right in the middle of my less-than-sparkling kitchen floor and screamed like she was having a limb forcibly removed.
I’m talking about the bellowing-until-you’re-red-faced-and-shaking-from-exertion kind of screaming.
I wish I could tell you what the screaming was about, but the truth is, I can’t remember. And I bet she can’t either. Whatever it was, it was insignificant.
But that didn’t stop my four-year-old sweet-and-sassy girl from being passionate about it just the same. In fact, if there’s one thing both of my girls are (and just maybe their mama is, too), it’s passionate.
Can you relate? So what do we do with all this high-strung emotion? It’s often manifested in some pretty unacceptable behavior, after all.
Raising Christian daughters who also happen to be passionate people is possible!
