One of the most important things we can teach our young women is to realize their infinite worth and divine nature. Society as a whole degrades the value of women in caring for others and valuing women for their kind natures. It is important for all women to feel their importance both as individuals and as members of the church.
Whether you are a parent or a church leader there are ways that you can help your young women to feel their worth. One is to treat them with love and respect at all times. Let your daughter know that you believe in her. Be encouraging, and every chance you can build her up with sincere compliments.
Another way to help her realize her worth is to teach her of the love that Heavenly Father has for her. This can be demonstrated in the love you show to her, but also through teaching the plan of salvation and about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Teaching your daughter these gospel basics will help her to gain a testimony and to feel the love the Lord has for her.
Additionally it is important to teach your daughter the importance of good choices and also that choices lead to consequences. At times this may be difficult when your daughter is making poor choices, but shielding her from the consequences will not help her in the long run. You can start this by reviewing the For Strength of Youth pamphlet with your family.
It is also important to discuss the conflicting views that the media brings to the value of girls and women. On one hand it teaches that women have the ability to do so much, while on the other it objectifies women. The gospel can bring a healthy perspective to these conflicting views. Addressing these issues can help your young woman be a good influence on those around her as she stands for the things that she knows are right. A good self image, and a good body image can help your daughter feel of her worth every day of her life.
