Luckily my daughter is strong minded and I have always instilled in her to respect herself and not be fooled by anyone. I have always been very open with her and allowed her to express herself. I have very strong views on certain things and she is the same. I always support what she does and give advise when appropriate, but at the same time give her the freedom to explore life for herself without controlling her thoughts and ideas. I hope I have given her a good start in life with morals and values. She is a great friend and will listen to her friends problems and will always be there for them. I have taught her to respect others and be compassionate and non-judgemental. She is very popular and a great friend to have. She will often give me advise and sees things logically. I am very proud of my daughter and admire her greatly. She has a sensible head on young shoulders.

I don't have a doughter, but I do have a sister who is MUCH younger than me...and technically could be my daughter. The trait I hope to pass on to her is Independence. She should always be able to take care of herself and have self-reliance.

Wow a great question- I hope I give her : trust-- trusting herself as well as others Honesty- no matter what honesty is the best answer Courage- to do what she chooses without thinking what will they think. High Self-estemm- We're working on this one- To be non-judgemental-- I think she teaches me this one too. Proud- to be proud of herself and to do things that make her proud. To stand up for herself at all times I'm sure there are many things I am not thinking of- What I don't want to give her is my patience-- I have very little at times-- I want her to be patient.

I hope to pass on my inquisitive nature, my love of reading, my fearlessness, and my brutal honesty.

My daughter is better than I could have ever hoped she would be. She is lovely, and loveable, smart. She is a good mom, she loves books. She is very spiritual, and very musical. I thought she was an easy child to raise. She tells me I have a selective memory. I admire her a lot.

Wow...I can't say I've been the best person on the face of this earth and I know where my faults and traits lie. However, my daughter is almost 12 years old and I'm forever telling her things she'll always think about. If you asked her right now, "What are boys?" She'll respond, "Boys are nothing but gross, disgusting vile creatures that aren't worth the powder to blow them up." If you ask her, "What should you look for in a boy?" She'll say, "I have to be 16 at the very least before I can even think about them. He'll have to be older than me, drive a car, good to his mother and family. If he's not in school and doing very well, he'd have to have a well paying job." I'm also teaching her (and my 10 year old son regaurding men in general) to be friends with males who are curteous, appologize and one who isn't afraid to speak out but be friendly.

I want my daughter to be deeply religious, to have a deep reverence to God and does not only go to church regularly but do some charity work for our church as well. I want her also to be very responsible in taking care of herself, to be able to discern what is best for her, to be able to take good care of herself, to be self-sufficient and not to rely so much on other people. And lastly, I also want her to be a loving, caring, and thoughtful person. Someone who is concerned with her fellow-human beings, compassionate and have a positive attitude in life.

She must have the tenacity to withstand the life trials and should be able to stand up whenever she falls. I would like her to learn that life is not all about winning and achieving but also about touching other people's lives and making this a better world. I hope my daughter will grow up to be an assertive and loving person.

I hope she gets the kind and loving spirit my mother has told me I have. Hope she gets the spunkyness to not be afraid to speak her mind and let herself be heard.
