One of the things I enjoy is to engage with young women. So, once a quarter, I host a "Girls Lunch with Dr Lulu". We sit, eat, talk, question, laugh, and share experiences about life in general.
Our end of the year Girls Lunch focused on the infinite possibilities that open up when we adopt a positive interpretation of self. I watched with empathy and awe at the courage of the Girls as they engaged and most certainly struggled to dig deep into what stands on the way of simply being who they really are. As we examined how identity, relationships and the environment influence our structures of interpretation (including of ourselves), I was taken aback by how as parents we might just be the ones limiting our Girls, be it unintentionally so. As we move into 2019, can I PLEASE appeal and encourage all parents to be a lot more intentional and deliberate in trusting our Girls.
Parents just let the Girls be, asseblief!
