Healthy Decision Making Environments

Posted on: April 27, 2010

               
                There are many different kinds of
                environments that are conducive to ensuring
                that our daughters make good decisions for
                themselves.
               
                It is important that we love our daughters
                unconditionally and not worry about the
                small and petty things that are going on in
                her life. That will help our daughters make
                decisions that are healthy and conducive to
                her self-growth.
               
                Secondly, we must ensure that we don’t
                always criticize our daughters. We must let
                them just BE sometimes and make decisions
                that they feel are RIGHT for THEM but not
                US.  This isn’t always easy. Mothers
                sometimes can see how their daughters will
                get together with the wrong crowd or hang
                out with the wrong people. However, it is
                important for us to allow our daughters to
                still make decisions for themselves about
                their friends.
               
                Thirdly, mothers should love their
                daughters unconditionally regardless of
                whether they go along with their decisions
                or not. Sometimes, mothers will suggest that
                their daughter acts or makes a particular
                decision, and they are devastated when the
                daughter goes her own way and does what
                she wants anyway. It is absolutely essential
                for mothers to love their daughters even if
                they feel that their daughters are not going
                along with what they suggested. This is how
                you can show unconditional love for you
                daughter.
               
                And if your daughter comes home in tears
                one day because she made a wrong decision,
                it is especially important for you to love her
                and not criticize her and tell her that I told
                you so. She knows that she made a mistake
                and she needs your support. By showing
                your daughter unconditional love during
                those times, you could be building your
                daughter’s self-esteem.
