4 Things You Should Never Say in Front of Your Daughter

My daughter is just over two years old and her favorite thing to do is whatever I am currently doing. Just the other day, we were in the kitchen together; she was working on her coloring pages as I cooked. I am not a natural at cooking. So, as I became frustrated, I grumbled, “Ugh! Seriously?! This is just ridiculous,” and threw my hands up. Not even 30 seconds passed before I heard my sweet girl exclaim, “This is ridiculous!” I watched as she threw her crayon onto the counter as if she were suddenly disgusted with the color yellow.

Moms, our daughters learn from us. They repeat what we say, and they mirror what we do. So even when it’s hard to love or even like ourselves, we need to be cautious about what we say and do in front of our daughters. These 4 things a mother should never say to her daughter can be especially damaging. Maybe you remember your own mother saying them.
