We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, 'You can have ambitions, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you will threaten the man.' Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices, always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, TEDtalk #feminism
One of the greatest gifts parents can give to their children is a strong, healthy, united, and loving marriage. As the marriage goes, so goes the family. As husband and wife, father and mother, be heroes and positive role models for your children. Don't forget—Actions speak louder than words... and you are always teaching your kids. Lead by example, being a model in word and deed. Both parents set the tone and pace for their children’s success.
