Let your daughters prepare the food when guests are coming over. Teach hospitality.
Show them the world. Go on a mission trip with your daughter. Travel helps us to understand history, culture, poverty,geography and so much more.

There is a good chance that your little girls will grow up to be mommies. Being a big sister is excellent preparation. So, why not have a new baby?
Sometimes your daughter will be afraid to try something new. Be the first one to get in the boat. Show courage.
Skills are for life. What skills can you help your girls learn? If you can't teach them something why not ask as friend, aunt, or grandma.
Encourage creativity! Collect craft supplies and set aside time for projects.
Your little children will follow the example of your older children. Talk to your older daughter about this great privilege.
Tell her that she is beautiful. Tell her that you love her. Every girl needs to know these two things.
If your daughter loves animals try to make room in your life for pets. Pets teach endless lessons.
If you are too busy to take your children on a picnic, you are too busy. Say yes to your kids!
I highly recommended adopting homeless animals. When you are ready for a pet, head for the local animal shelter.
Choose to be an example of a joyful, content, compassionate, and courageous woman. Ask God to help you. Your daughter will grow up to be like you. Children are much more likely to do as you do, not do as you say.
