Day of the Girl
We’ve once again had the pleasure of partnering with Athleta, this time to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. Athleta (and we!) believe that every single girl possesses limitless potential, and it is their mission to inspire and encourage girls to seize their power.
Athleta has teamed up with the non-profit organization, Girl Leadership, to create this limited edition All Kinds of Powerful tee & sweatshirt. Girl Leadership works to equip girls with the skills to exercise the power of their voice through life and leadership skills.
A parenting priority for us is teaching our girls to maintain and grow their confidence and ability to grow from failure, as well as succeed spectacularly. We provide daily encouragement to understand the meaning and scope of power, how to harness it, and the strength to use it. Below are five fabulous tips to acknowledge and encourage power in your girl.
Tips to Cultivate Power
1. What is power? Make sure that your girl understands that power is about influence. When her actions or words impact others, that’s power.
2. She’s already powerful. Point out to her ways that she already influences others. How does she behave or communicate that makes people listen to her?
3. What’s her power style? Show her examples of leaders who are introverts as well as extroverts; leaders who wear suits and leaders who wear running shorts.
4. Power rocks the boat. Be honest. Using her power may not always make her the most popular. But when she speaks her truth, that price is usually worth it!
5. A million ways to be powerful. There are less expected ways she can have influence. Sharing feelings, asking for (or demanding!) what she needs, making space for others, creating art, listening intently, and knowing when to walk away are just a few.
So, what does power mean to some of my – admittedly biased – favorite Athleta Girls?
‘Power means to be free…To be exactly who I want to be.’ Amélie, age 9
‘To have strength over other people AND yourself. I’m really strong.’ Indi, age 7
‘To be helpful. To help someone like a superhero does.’ LuLu, age 4
‘My coach said I run like a girl. And I said if he ran a little faster he could too.’ Mia Hamm
