Because a decent number of those guys have some nutty ideas about what it means to be in charge.
But here’s a hard reality: if you raise that daughter, she’ll likely intimidate her fair share of “nice Christian boys” as well.
In spite of any hope you had of slowing down the clock, you woke up one day to find that your child is not so childlike anymore.
Rather than finding the strengths of others threatening, they celebrate them and leverage them.Her statement indicates assurance that she is not only strong, but also able to defend herself against any unworthy suitors. Here’s the problem with shotgun jokes and applications posted on the fridge: to anyone paying attention, they announce that you fully expect your daughter to have poor judgment. And don’t be shocked if she meets your expectation. Leadership is not about the strong looking for weaker people to lead.You might want to worry less about terrorizing or retro-fitting prospective suitors and worry more about preparing your daughter to choose wisely. Instead of intimidating all your daughter’s potential suitors, raise a daughter who intimidates them just fine on her own. It’s about the humble looking for those whose strengths offset their weaknesses and complement their strengths.Discipline becomes increasingly difficult and may feel impossible to maintain.It’s tough to know when to set rules and when to give freedom, when to bend and when to stand firm, when to intervene and when to let live.
