What type of careers have you discussed with them--nursing, teaching or engineering, construction or politics?
What about values?--Is it okay to live with a boyfriend before marriage, have children outside of the traditional family types?
We have never discussed how we are raising our girls, or what we are teaching them.
While I am currently in the traditional role of SAHM and wife, I enjoyed a career for years. I want my girls to be well-prepared to support their families, have careers that are family friendly, and I want them to feel confident, self assured and be happy.
If they choose to be SAHM (which I realize is not a choice many women will have in the future), I want them to be happy.
If they decide to be career women and working mothers, I want them to be happy.
We discuss many jobs and careers, including nontraditional ones for women.
I insist however, they need to get married before having children. I think children need fathers as much as mothers. That is just my opinion, though.
