  • Encouraging girls

    On page 137 Larry writes the below: Do you believe this is true? Do you do this in your own household with a girl?

    "We have to encourage girls to be adventurous, loud, strong, physically powerful, and assertive. We need to fight the notion that strong women and girls are not proper females. This may require, especially for motheres, that we take a close look at our own upbringing, and our own inhibitions about wrestling and rough-and-tumble play. All children can use a hand with being more confident and being powerful in a healthy and constructive way, but girls face extra obstacles to discovering this reservoir of strength."
