When I was at camp a few days ago, one girl was laughing and making a joke that I didn't catch, relating to a counselors coffee cup. One of my friends specifically said: Don't tell George that. But the girl showed me the cup that said: Who are these kids and why are they calling me Mom? Which is a book reference, but she said: When you get raped. And I nearly slapped her.
I want my daughters too learn, live and breath this. I think every woman needs to learn to not need anyone and to always always be able to hold herself up alone. Nothing wrong with love of being with a man, just learn to keep your independence!
