Are You Pushing Your Daughter Too Hard?

 

As parents, we want to raise our daughter to spread her wings and stand on her own two feet. While pushing your girl toward independence is necessary for her adulthood, it is possible to push too hard.

There’s a delicate line between pushing your girl and allowing her to move at her own pace. You may want her to join the school’s traveling debate team the moment she hits high school, but maybe she isn’t ready until later. Ecclesiastes says, “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens”

A healthy balance starts with taking the time to get to know your girl’s strengths and growth areas. This will help as you prayerfully steer her in the right direction.
