Respecting Your Daughter’s Privacy

Posted on: April 20, 2010

               It seems that only a little while ago, your
               daughter was crawling around and needing your
               help for everything. Then it seems like just the
               next day your daughter is growing up and needs
               some space for herself alone.
                This can sometimes be difficult for mothers to
               come to terms with the fact that their daughters
               need privacy. In fact, it is usually one of their
               rights as they are growing up and start
               developing as adolescents.
               The need for privacy takes place in fits and
               starts. One day you will be a confidant. The next
               day you will be excluded from her world. Even
               young girls who are just starting school may be a
               bit secretive. They may have a crush on a boy in
               their class. They may have a zit on their face that
               they are very embarrassed about. Sadly, some
               very young girls feel fat.
               As hard as it is for us to not barge into their
               lives, we must resist this temptation. Mothers
               must honour their daughters need for privacy.
               They need to experiment and experience their
               secrets and privacy. Ultimately, our daughters
               are practising their judgment about what is hers
               alone and what and who will have access to
               different parts of her life.
               Respecting our daughter’s privacy is
               important because, although we feel excluded,
               she is practising becoming a strong, self-reliant,
               and self-confident woman.
