As moms, we may not always have the right answers or know the solution to our daughter’s problems. But one thing I know for sure is – we want them to feel supported and have the resources needed to make the right decisions in life.

In times like these, I want to provide my child with a little golden nugget that may help her gain clarity and figure out what she needs to do. 

I want her to be able to feel empowered and inspired in her decision-making – so years from now she can look back and say – “yes, I made the right choice.” 

She may even look back and say something like this – “I learned a valuable lesson from making that decision. A lesson that allowed me to be more responsible.” Or, some other variations. 

As a parent, I want to raise a strong confident daughter who will let her voice be heard respectfully and courageously. A daughter who will be proud of her roots. The color of her skin and hair. Her body frame. A daughter who will know that she’s ENOUGH!

And she can be everything she dreams of becoming.

I’m sure you want the same for your little girl! Don’t you?

The way we choose to respond to our child will shape her ability to make the best choices for her life.

Here are 30 empowering quotes that you can use to motivate your daughters when uncertainties knock at the door.

I’m sure you’ve had a time when you doubted yourself or felt inferior to others.

I know, I have!

And it can be so detrimental to our self-esteem. Self-doubts can hold us back from stepping into the light we are and who we are meant to be. It can prevent us from going after what we want and living our best life!

And it sure can do the same to our little girls. 

Self-doubts can prevent our girls from doing the things they really want to do. But once they can strengthen their self-worth, they will be bold, brave, and confident in what they believe and stand for. Traits we all desire for our daughters. 

Let’s remind our girls that they are beautiful just the way they are with each passing day.

Self-love is a bit cliche these days. Yet, so many modern women are struggling with their self-worth falling victim to the comparison game. Losing their identity just to fit into that “tiny box” society created. 

Let’s remind our daughters that they are worthy of being, having, and doing anything they desire. There’s no need for her to lose her identity to be accepted or feel appreciated by others. Remind her that she’s unique, and all she has to do is embrace her authenticity and show up and be the beauty she is.
