    I want both of my daughters to succeed in anything that they might do in life. To be something better than what I have become is my ultimate wish for both of them. I will unconditionally support them without judgment in any path that they may take in life.

    I would think that every mother wants their children to succeed. I have three daughters and I pray they all succeed in whatever endeavors they do, be it motherhood, jobs, or just life in general.

    Hopes For My Daughters

    As a Daughter...

    The thing about this is how some parents take this a bit far. I've read some  of the other stories, and they really sound like sweet and supportive parents. If only every parent took their attitude. I don't know, it's just the way sometimes my parents want me to succeed so...

    Of Course

    What kind of decent parent wouldn't want this?? I'll admit, I have certain things that I'm going to try to promote to my daughter because I know I missed out by not being involved. One example is sports - I've never played them and I'm incredibly unathletic. I want her to have a...

    I wanted a little girl so bad. I am a Mom of three boys. Sometimes I get so sad that I did not have a girl. I wanted to name her Mikaela. Girls should be taught to be strong and independent. We do not need men in order to be successful.
