Yes, all kids are not the same. It needs different skill sets to handle a daughter and a son. But with your daughter you could be even more friendly. Treat her as your friend that treating her as your daughter till she crosses her adoloscence age. Try to understand her feeling by being in her shoes. Dont put too many restrictions and at the same time, dont leaver her as it is by giving her lots of freedom. Make sure she tells you everything that have happened on that day, but again dont force her to tell that. Be friendly. Keep track of her friends and try to maintain a good relationship with her friend's mothers too. This will help you and your daughter to cross those critical years without much strain.
