This is wonderful. I hadn't seen it. So powerful. xoxo
Young teen boys need some encouragement too.I hope that comes along also.
Perhaps a #boyswillbeboys theme.
an excellent idea!
This just goes to prove what my mother always said about certain words being hurtful to others and if there was nothing good to say, not to say anything. I do remember hearing "like a girl" in elementary and junior high, but seems like that stopped in high school when dating started. In my day it was more, "I am woman, hear me roar!" ;-) Thank you for sharing this. I am going to show it to my DIL and Granddaughter. love and prayers, jep
Thank you so much for sharing this. It really is so powerful. Raising two girls who are high school & college age, I never think of "like a girl" as an insult anymore. They constantly amaze me with their confidence and abilities. But when I was their age, I would have been embarrassed to have been told I did something "like a girl." I believe things are changing.
Well. As the mother of 6 grown daughters, that made me cry: I have watched my daughters become strong young women (with whom I don't always agree!) and it is good to think that perhaps the world will appreciate them as such.
Wonderful. And very well done. I've always run and hit like a girl, and I'm okay with that, because I was encouraged by my parents at a young age to be myself. I'm glad for messages like this, that will hopefully serve to build up anyone who is discouraged, or feels "less than". Thanks, Donna :-)
Wonderful. Well done. BOTH boys and girls need confidence building like this. AMEN!!!
This is beautiful!! (she said through tears)
