We Need to Teach Our Daughters...



Dr. Laura,

A friend of mine just posted this on Facebook and it immediately made me think of you and how this is the very message you would teach if you were the mother of all the daughters in the world.  I wish you had been mine! - Linda

We Need to Teach Our Daughters to Know the Difference Between:


A man who flatters her and

A man who complements her,


A man who spends money on her

And a man who invests in her,


A man who views her as property

And a man who views her properly,


A man who lusts after her

And a man who loves her,


A man who believes he's a gift to women,

And a man who believes she's a gift to him,


And then we need to teach our sons

To be that kind of man.
