    We should instil in our daughters a proper set of values, not those of 21st century decadence. They should be raised to be polite, respectful, and of course inquisitive.

    Raise them however you want. But before they get their first monthly visit, someone should explain to them that there is no direct connection between the stomach and the Uterus.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    To treat everyone fairly regaurdless of race, gender, or thought:

    There are still children heavily influenced by their parents beliefs which are dated and out of touch with current day morality.

    To allow herself to rely on others (to trust) but not to her detriment:

    To many people today are actually TO INDEPENDENT! This has gotten in the way of healthy relationships both with friends and significant others. Trust has gone out the window. That being said, I would also teach her the pitfalls of trusting the wrong person. It is not always bad to give someone a chance with your trust and let them fail, but if you decide to gamble, make sure it's a gable you can afford to loose.

    To not take advantage of her own gender, but also understand that their is beauty in being a female. As well as utility in being male.

    I would teach my daughter that she should not conform to the current culture of taking advantage of her gender. She should be willing to do anything she asks someone else to do for her, or at least try it. But at the same time understanding there is a difference between men and women and those differences are beautiful and not indicative of submissiveness or discrimination. To many women today do not appreciate what men do for them and even worse, feel that what men can do for them enslaves them instead of helps them. Blaming men for their inherent biological differences that they can do nothing about. That taking a submissive role and trusting a man to make a decision and standing behind him, right or wrong, is not a bad thing. But at the same time, not being submissive to her detriment. That both men and women should be submissive to each other. That is the only way a healthy relationship can go on.

    To abandon the idea that a man should approach her to initiate a relationship and that the jocks in life are the ones she should be interested in:

    It is time for women to step up to the plate and believe in what they preach. They want to be equal in the office at work, but still want to play the submissive role when it comes to dating. Then they want to complain about all the assholes they attract when they don't do anything to go out and initiate a relationship. When I say initiate a relationship, I don't mean to choose from the group of guys that approach her, but to go out and approach a guy herself without initiation from the guy. I would teach her that the best way to find a good guy is to make an effort to approach one. To throw the traditional notions out the window that an attractive guy has to be an alpha male ("jock"), has to be make a lot of money (post high school jock type), or have a high status. Because none of this matters. What matters is if she is in love with the person, not the superficialness of him, but the heart of the person.

    Those are just a few things I would teach my daughter, if I had one.
    What is wrong with jocks? I was an honor roll 4 year letterman jock in three different sports. Nobody was more of a jock than me... nobody. I still managed great grades and the ability to impress myself in many areas of life. I am very good looking as well.

    I would not teach my daughter to approach guys because if they approached the wrong guy that could create problems. Getting to know a guy first in a realm where they have common interests or run into each other is better. Then they are not approaching. Instead they are initiating another step in an already existing relationship. It is also better to avoid the slut approach which would certainly get tossed around quickly.

    Other than those two you have a lot of sweeping generalities...

    Not at all. Being a polite and respectful lady does not mean being quiet or submissive. Woman today are more empowered than ever in Western countries. Having a good moral system instilled in them doesn't mean they cannot achieve their ambitions and doesn't deny them the chance to live well and express themselves. Instilling such values simply gives them a compass for life. What's so wrong about raising someone with manners and respect? The same should apply for raising boys too.
