  • Being A Positive Role Model

    your child. I always tell my girls to be their own person and they can be whatever the set their minds to be. My first self-check with keeping an open mind was when I was shopping for school clothes with my then 7yr old daughter, Amarrah. I was reaching for a skirt for her to look at and she said “Mom, I don’t feel comfortable in skirts. dresses, or skorts.” I looked at her kind of funny and said, “How do you know what comfortable is?” I put the skirt down and proceeded to buy her shorts and pants for that school year even though I wanted her in skirts and dresses. My second big self-check was when I was having a conversation with my youngest daughter, Aniyah, about what she wanted to be when she grew up. After her recent visit to a local fire department she told me she wanted to be a firefighter. I turned up my face and said no, how about being a doctor or better yet a lawyer since she is argumentative. She said “Mom, you always tell us we can be whatever we want to be. Why can’t I be a firefighter?” At that moment, I had to tell her she was right and I just want to make sure she is safe and I was scared something would happen to her. In those two instances if I didn’t keep an open mind and pushed my daughter to wear a skirt or told the other she couldn’t be a firefighter I would have indirectly told them don’t be yourself. That could have potentially lead to self-esteem issues. With having an open mind, you must be patient. Being patient not only can help keep you sane,…
