Being Aware of Our Daughters’ Fears and Anxieties

Posted on: March 31, 2010

                We must strive to become aware of our
               daughters’ fears and anxieties so that we could
               help her to become a self-confident and self-
               assertive teenager and adult later on.
              
               One of the best ways to help your daughter to
               deal with her fears is to talk to her about her
               emotions, be they negative or positive, in an
               honest and quiet way. Fear is one of the few
               things that grows well in the dark, and by
               shining light on those fears, they can be shrunk
               down to a manageable size.
              
               This is relatively to accomplish when your
               daughter finds it easy to express her fears and
               emotions openly and honestly without worrying
               what you will think or how you will react.  She
               needs stability and consistency in order to open
               up on a consistent basis.
              
               However, our society has placed a deep
               stigma on fearfulness. And this is especially the
               case for girls. They get the message early on that
               there is something bad or weak about being
               afraid. As a result, often the fears take root and
               grow in silence, since they are ashamed to admit
               they are afraid.
              
               It is very important for mothers to talk openly
               to their daughters about their emotions. This
               should really avoid some of the real hardships
               that girls feel later on in life.
              
               The message that mothers should express to their
               daughters is that it is okay to be afraid.  It is
               normal and it could save your life. So, fear has its
               place in all of our lives, and this is especially the
               case for teenage girls.
