When you ask any parent what they want their child to be when they grow up, you usually hear answers that say that it doesn’t really matter what they pursue in life as long as their child is happy and successful.
Being successful is something that cannot be taught in school, especially for girls. If you are to teach your child how to be successful, you have to start when they are still young.
Here are some ways to teach your daughter to have girl power that will eventually make her a future #GirlBoss
1. Teach her to be proud to be a girl
There will always be times when gender can be the first way to judge people. You don’t want your daughter to lose hope or just stop trying just because she is seen as “just a girl.” Make her proud to be a girl and make her stand up for the equality of genders. Nobody has the right to make her feel down for being a girl.

2. Teach her to have an entrepreneurial mindset
From the start, your daughter has to know that in order to be an entrepreneur, you don’t necessarily have to start a business. The entrepreneurial life can be adapted by living out according to her principles, having courage, taking risks, and the will to be unique and do things differently from what other people are used to.

3. Teach her how to redefine trying
The worst enemy anyone could have is the fear of failure. You have to teach your daughter, that failure does not really have to be because she failed on the outcome of something she tried. Teach her to redefine failure by viewing it as an asset. If you have no failures to count, then that means you did not even try. Whereas, when you do have failures, no matter what the outcome is, you are still a winner for trying.
