Being a young woman is a gift. Women possess the remarkable and fascinating ability to carry a tiny person inside of their womb. Women can be emotional, but our emotions give us the aptitude to possess empathy. Many women are nurturing, and through their interactions with others can help a person look deep within and see brilliance, talent, patience, and amazing potential. Women can be anything they want to be doctors, nurses, attorneys, entrepreneurs, engineers, authors, teachers, mechanics, musicians, etc. As I raise my girls, I want them to have the confidence to fulfill their dreams. I want them to dream big and explore new things far beyond what I can imagine. I want them to walk with their heads held high, and their eyes wide with joy and excitement. If you’re raising your girls to be confident, here are five ways I learned to be confident growing up and I am trying to pass them onto to my daughters.

“Nearly 1 in 5 girls have missed activities because they can’t afford period protection. Let’s get her back in the action!” I’m personally stocking up to give back by making these donation-triggering purchases to help young girls regain their confidence. It’s easy to join me and help this cause by going to smarturl.it/WalmartAlways to purchase a 3-pack box of Always Pads. Once you make your purchase, Always will donate a pack to girls in need. It’s a win-win – you stock up AND help a girl stay in the activity she loves.

5 Ways to Raise Confident Daughters

1. Direct Eye Contact.

I don’t know what it is about looking someone in the eye when speaking that conveys confidence, but it does. In fact, it just feels good to be able to look another person squarely in their eyes and feel powerful and connected.

2. Be Gracious.

IIn many ways confidence isn’t something that is bestowed upon us by others, it gradually grows with us as we grow and figures itself out over time. Thus, a confident person knows how to say thank you when receiving compliments. Confidence is also seen by the way we treat others. Right now, Always and Walmart are trying to help underserved young women to build their confidence and not worry about their period by ending period poverty.


To help #EndPeriodPoverty, Always and Walmart are donating a year’s supply of period products to 50 teams in 50 states. In addition, for every purchase of a 3-pack box of Always Pads, Always will donate a pack to girls in need across the US. This donation will only be triggered via purchases from smarturl.it/WalmartAlways during the month of January 2019. Please join the movement and help girls who need help with pads.

3. Stand with good posture.

Nothing says you’re unsure of yourself quite like slouching. Standing up straight says that your body is right in line with your thoughts and you have nothing to hide.

4. Make calculated decisions without wavering.

Giving kids a chance to make a few of their own decisions without being forced to follow mom or dads rules is important. Sure, they aren’t ready to decide everything yet but give them ample practice while they are young so they can decide without constantly second-guessing themselves.

5. Speak positively about oneself.

When I close my eyes and think about the future. I can see my daughter being the CEO of her own company one day. I can see her taking charge and delegating and making masterpieces one day. It’s my job as a parent to help her see what I see now. So how I talk to her and our other family members matters greatly.

Personally, growing up, I struggled with confidence. I was intelligent, but I didn’t feel pretty on the outside. As I raise my own daughters, and as they reach adolescent years, I see that the same struggles I had affect them as well.  Not feeling smart enough or pretty enough always comes from the cost of comparison. Let us encourage our girls not to compare, but to be whole within themselves. That wholeness starts with us parents as we try to model behavior they would be happy to emulate.
