What I want my child to know

What I want my child to know

The other day I was sitting in a café and I heard a group of teenagers talking. There were three girls talking about boys, clothes and other girls over juice.

On first glance, it was a nice scene.

It wasn’t until my curiosity made me listen in a little more. It became apparent that one was trying her hardest to fit in and impress the others – looking a little awkward and notreally enjoying herself.

It prompted me to think about my four-year-old daughter and what’s in store for her in years to come.

I think we’ve all felt a little awkward at one time of another and just wanted to fit in, like the girl I was observing, and it’s not until you’re older and wiser – that you realise that actually just yourself is the best way to be.

It made me think about all the other things I wished I knew when I was younger.

And here’s my top ten….

  1. Being different isn’t a bad thing
  2. If you don’t agree with someone, don’t be afraid to say so (respectfully)
  3. Stand up to bullies – if they are picking on you or someone else
  4. You will make mistakes and that’s okay
  5. Confidence in a woman doesn’t mean you’re bossy
  6. Saying sorry first is not a sign of weakness
  7. You can’t control what others think about you
  8. Real life is always better than the online one
  9. You don’t have to be the best, you just need to try
  10. Don’t let the sun go down on an argument

And you’re never too old to hug or want your parents!

What do you wish you knew when you were a child?
