    I always asked them about school, and got the same response every time. It is OK.

    All I can do is hope they do well to better their lives.

    I am no longer with my girlfriend so I don't see the girls much at all.

    If she decides to take drugs, she can get hooked or die, that can affect the rest of her life.

    If she decides to drop out of school, that will affect the rest of her life.

    That needs to be drilled into her head about the time she is 12 or 13.

    It works beleive me.

    There are exceptions to every rule of course.

    A friend of mine had a daughter.

    I guess she was 15 when I asked her about her dating. She said she wasn't allowed to yet.

    I then asked her about getting pregnant, in the future. She said matter of factly that it wouldn't happen because her father would kill her. She was right.

    I didn't sense fear in that answer though, more like respect. He kept her in line and she turned out very well. Successful.

    My son is 5 1/2 right now so I have time with him.

    Teenage boys seem easier to deal with, much less emotions controlling the thoughts.

    I haven't made any generalizations. You have. And when you starting making generalizations like "women can't teach their daughters", you are the one with problem. I've never heard that generalizations and sexist comments are good signs of parenting.
    I know a girl who was raised by a single mother, and she is also far from a slut... She waited until she was married. I think some girls see their mother in that situation and how hard it is, and they don't want to end up single and raising 2 or 3 kids in poverty so they wait to have babies and have sex.

    I doubt it. Her teenage years were controlled by him.

    She moved to California from Nevada after that and went to work for a big company.

    That is where I lost track of her.

    Girls are taught to look pretty and be cute but very little is put into intelligence and values.

    For example, every time I was at my ex-girlfriends house, she had a lot of nieces, the girls would come through the door and they would only be told how cute they were. Nobody ever asked how they were doing in school or ask them if they needed any help.



    My friend has three very cute/ pretty daughters. It's difficult not to comment on that too much, but I know it's the wrong thing to do. So whenever I first see them I make a point to ask two of them about school, grades, activities. The little one, I ask about cartoons or something like that. Of course later, I can't resist commenting on how cute they look if they're wearing something new, or if their hair looks extra nice.
    Seriously, I can remember exactly what you are talking about from when I was a kid. It seemed everyone I met had to commit on my looks first thing and didn't care about anything else. I didn't like it. So whenever I see that happening to other little girls, my stomache does a roll. People just need to wise up and realize they are doing harm.

    Most Psychologists beg to disagree. In fact men during their teenage years actually have been shown to experience more powerful extremes of emotion whereas girls are actually more emotionally stable. Though due to the cultural stereotype that frowns upon men expressing their emotions fully most feel the need to conceal them.

    I am tired of saying the s word in this thread... but maybe your attitude is the result of people you know and hangout with. In my household we tell the girls they are smart, we talk to them about their grades, and we help them study. Education is important... In fact, the majority of college students today are women, not men. An intelligent woman is not a rare species.
