Many parents feel overprotective over their daughters as opposed to their sons, a problem that's starting to shift. Parents are getting more comfortable now, though, letting their sons express emotions and their daughters express more traditionally masculine behaviors as we edge toward a more gender fluid society.
How do you let your daughter be free and independent while also making sure she knows how to keep herself safe?
Earlier, a reddit user asked "Men of Reddit, what are some things a mom should know while raising a boy?" and the answers were incredibly helpful. Make sure to always knock on the door, let them do their own laundry, teach them to cook, and don't tease them about their crushes on girls. Following that train of thought, another Reddit user asked, "women of Reddit, what are some things a dad should know about raising a girl?" and the answers were equally interesting. It's rough out there to be a parent, but the internet is here to help!
