There may be no better time to raise a girl than now. Her future is big, bright and powerful. As the generation that’s raising her, our job is to empower each one to find her voice, her purpose and her power — to be who she was born to be, her authentic self.

And her authentic self has big plans. A 2017 survey of 1,000 kids by New York Life and Fatherly found girls are about four times more likely to say they want to be a doctor than boys. Girls were even more likely to say they want to be in a STEM field, with 56.6 percent of girls choosing it, compared to 43.3 percent of boys. Because girls tend to experience a dip in self-esteem between eight and 14, we need to instill a few traits, superpowers really, that will help her not only become who she is meant to be, but also achieve her goals and lift others up along the way.

This Is the Most Surprising Thing Most Couples Share, According to Science

This Is the Most Surprising Thing Most Couples Share, According to Science A new study from the University of Edingburgh published in the journal Hereditary found that people often choose partners with compatible lifespans without even realizing it.

When the Doctor is close to death, he is able to start a biological process within himself, called regeneration, that changes every single cell in his body, while still leaving his mind intact. Essentially, he becomes a different person: new looks, new personality, new everything.

Moreover, when you are feeling under the weather, there is nothing like a sweet pair of eyes that immediately get your mind off thoughts that are making you sad and depressed. C. Companionship with a loving pet is a real source of entertainment.

For guidance and inspiration, we asked nine superwomen of today what traits they hope to instill in the superwomen of tomorrow. With a little love and a lot of big dreams, they can become what we know they were born to be — unstoppable.

Kindness

Kindness is one of the first things we learn, but it’s so easy to forget. It’s why Veronica Hanson, owner of Vacay Visionary, works overtime to show her daughters what kindness looks like around the world. “I’ve taken my daughters to seven countries to get a first-hand look at how other societies treat their citizens. How a community is shaped starts with kindness,” Hanson says. “My daughters see it in the cleanliness of the sidewalks or the courtesy of the drivers to pedestrians. Where there is more kindness, there is a better quality of life for every level of society.”

I'm Mike Adamick, Author of 'Raising Empowered Daughters,' and This Is How I Parent Mike Adamick has a message for his fellow dads: Sexism exists, and if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. In his forthcoming book Raising Empowered Daughters: A Dad-to-Dad Guide, he zooms in on how the seemingly innocent myths, tropes and sayings that fathers often pass on to their kids can coalesce into something much more damaging. The good news? You don’t have to let these things slide. Adamick, who is raising a 13-year-old daughter, shared with us how he parents.

Perhaps most important , in the hands of a trusted leader, employees are more comfortable with change and more willing to embrace a new vision. In a nutshell, being competent is certainly important , but it must be coupled with the sense that you have your employees’ welfare and interests

Empathy

The ability to put yourself in another person’s shoes is a world-expanding skill. And one of the best ways to cultivate it is to get out of your comfort zone, go out into the world, and be around as many different types of people as possible.“My 16-year-old works in a breakfast restaurant, and I’ve seen her empathy strengthened by the people she works with and the situations she’s encountered,” says Amy Carney, author of Parent on Purpose: A Courageous Approach to Raising Children in a Complicated World. “I also take her to serve in our community and on overseas mission trips, so she can experience the real world.”

Generosity

Where there is kindness and empathy, there is generosity. Generosity is the ability to understand what you have, see what others need, and respond accordingly in whatever way you can. The girls’ clothing brand Justice values giving back, and it is working to instill generosity in girls every day. Its new event and video streaming program The Summit: A Girl’s View celebrates three core principles — self, teamwork and community  — by exploring topics like finding your unique strength, identifying the friends you can count on, and giving and receiving help, empowering girls with the skills they need to give back.

Our children and grandchildren are shaped by the genes they inherit from us, but new research is revealing that experiences of hardship or violence can leave their mark too. If it were a genetic trait then children born before and after the war would be equally likely to show the reduced life expectancy.

The World Wildlife Fund (The WWF) rescued several species of animals, mammals as well as birds. These organizations also helped to create more than 250 National parks. To my mind, the main traits of their characters are their hospitality, their "open heartedness" and inventiveness.

9 Important Traits Our Daughters Need When They Eventually Run the World

Curiosity

The instinct to ask “how come?” or “what if?” is a powerful one. Kathy Taberner, cofounder of The Curiosity Institute, calls it the “unsung hero of the 21st century.”

As the world becomes more and more connected, it’s become smaller and smaller, making it more important than ever to appreciate the unique perspective each of us offers, but we need curiosity to do that. “If we do not begin to get curious, to understand each other, we will not build the relationships needed to ensure we are all of equal value on the planet,” she tells SheKnows. “Everyone should be able to thrive.”

Courage of Conviction

Is there anything more fierce than a woman who knows what she believes and believes what she knows? Not to Angela Wilson Gyetvan, founder of Digital Whisper, whose wish for girls is to have courage of their convictions — and not be afraid to raise their voices to defend those them. “I want them to know that it’s OK to want what they want; that ambition in women is a blessing, and that it takes all of our gifts to elevate the human race.”

Sickle cell disease: In Nigeria your genetic makeup can decide your dating choices

Sickle cell disease: In Nigeria your genetic makeup can decide your dating choices First date questions in many parts of the world usually revolve around hobbies or favorite TV shows. But in Nigeria, the first date conversation is more likely to be about your DNA than if you watch 'Grey's Anatomy' or where you like to vacation. Many people don't want to waste time dating someone who carries the genes that cause sickle cell disease (SCD). The likelihood of this happening is very high in Nigeria, which has one of the highest incidences of the lifelong disease in the world. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Self-Confidence

This is the foundation on which so many of the other traits listed here are built. Self-confidence is what gives us the strength to live authentically. To Jill Sylvester, LMHC, M.Ed., self-confidence takes the shape of trusting your intuition, listening to your inner voice and acting on its wisdom. “That way, when a girl makes a decision, she needs explain it to no one; she simply knows the right thing to do for herself and her well-being.”

Assertiveness

Assertiveness is a trait that builds on self-confidence, and it is essential to standing up for yourself and others. “Assertiveness will enable our daughters to speak up when something wrong or unjust happens. It is the ability to express oneself openly, honestly, respectfully and, most importantly firmly, so that the listener gets a clear message and change can happen,”Dr. Tapo Chimbganda, founder of Future Black Female, tells SheKnows. “It will help them advocate for themselves and others, become better communicators and leaders, and protect them from bullies, opportunists, misogynists, predators and jerks.”

Determination

“Determination is the ability to focus on a goal, even in the face of danger or other tough challenges,” says career counselor and coach Lynn Berger. Helping girls develop their own determination starts with us. “Watching others, having positive role models and a sense of purpose can help build determination.”

Anorexia may be more complicated than we thought

Anorexia may be more complicated than we thought A genetic study argues for a more nuanced view of the disorder. 

Self Love

None of the above traits are possible without self love. “It is critical in the development of compassionate, grounded, loving beings,” Nyaima Taylor, co-creator of Art & Alchemy, tells SheKnows. “It minimizes the negative effects of feeling unworthy. It provides a foundation for the full, authentic expression of the self. Self love is the gateway to self-worth.”

Want to Be a Great Leader? Science Says Stop Trying to Be So 'Authentic'.
Or at the very least, stop trying so hard to "be yourself." Conventional wisdom says the best way to be a great leader is to be an "authentic" leader. Doing what you say. Practicing what you preach. Being yourself. As Adam Grant writes: "We are in the Age of Authenticity, where 'be yourself' is the defining advice in life, love, and career. Authenticity means erasing the gap between what you firmly believe inside and what you reveal to the outside world... We want to live authentic lives, marry authentic partners, work for an authentic boss, vote for an authentic president.
