40 Things To Teach My Future Daughter

things to teach my daughter, letter to my future child, advice for my daughter, life advice, this stuff is golden,

This is definitely not a complete list but it certainly covers many of the important issues that I’ll want to talk to my daughter(s) about one day. Though I have a lot of boys in my family history (I have three brothers, my father has three brothers, my mum has two brothers), I really hope I’ll have at least one daughter to pass on what I have learnt growing up and as an adult. 

If by any chance that TSIG is still online – Esther/Violet, hello from your mum (currently aged 24 with bleached hair and four tattoos). I have a lot I want to tell you, I can’t wait to meet you and I already love you.

  1. How you look doesn’t reflect how much you are worth.
  2. You are made of stars. Seriously.
  3. Don’t dumb yourself down for anyone.
  4. Learn new things as much as possible.
  5. Love is not determined by gender.
  6. You can have sex with however many people you want, as long as it really is what you and the other person want.
  7. Sex isn’t love.
  8. There is always emotion in sex – not necessarily emotions between those involved, but always emotions within yourself.
  9. Practice safe sex.
  10. Masturbating is perfectly normal.
  11. Pubes are also perfectly normal.

  16. Treat people how you wish to be treated.
  17. Don’t bully others just because the popular kids are doing it.
  18. Being friends with the popular kids isn’t what it’s cracked up to be.
  19. Being your weird self will make you much happier than trying to be somebody else.
  20. You can like playing with toy cars and playing with glitter, and so can your brothers.
  21. “Gay” does not mean stupid or lame.
  22. Sing and dance whenever you feel like it.
  23. Don’t be afraid of/mean to those that are different to you.

  25. Keep a diary because it’s good for your soul.
  26. You can tell me anything. I promise not to be angry with you for telling me the truth.
  27. Wearing make-up is great but so is not wearing make-up.
  28. The true Queens of this world are Ru Paul, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga.
  29. Nothing is ever as bad as it seems.
  30. There’s two ways to look at problems: either with a defeated attitude or a I’m-gonna-fix-this attitude.
  31. Be on-time.
  32. A career isn’t worth your happiness.

  39. Your siblings may annoy you now but later they’ll be your closest friends.
  40. Everything is going to be okay.
