Sallie Krawcheck, the CEO of Ellevest recently shared a fascinating insight: Boys are taught to be brave while girls are taught to be perfect.
She told a story of her own kids where her daughter came home apologizing about a B+ while her son triumphantly showed his C. “Imagine if I had studied!”
I see this with my own daughter. Chloe will be afraid to guess unless she knows the answer. She’s only five.
Look in the mirror. Are you being brave? Or, are you trying to be perfect? Our kids model us, so take that risk. Do it for your daughter, your niece, and girls everywhere.
