2. Validate your daughter’s thoughts and experiences: As your daughter grows up, she is constantly learning about the world and what surrounds her. As your daughter grows, listen to her thoughts and opinions about various situations. Letting her form her own opinion will let her know she is valid in her opinions and has the right to express them.

3. Use encouragement: Everyone has bad days. If your daughter comes home feeling a bit down, be sure to sit down with her and talk about what’s wrong. Whether it’s a fight with a friend, a bad grade on a test, or maybe a problem with a crush on a friend at school, make sure you listen to your daughter and offer advice and encouragement, she will develop a sense of purpose and continue to keep on trucking no matter what happens.

4. Set boundaries on both ends: Respect your daughter’s privacy. By giving your daughter space, you are letting her know that you trust her, and then she will trust you too. This trust will build her own trust in herself, and ultimately confidence in herself too.
