This mother of a five year old girl is inspiring parents across the internet with this powerful letter that she wrote for her.
The letter goes on to list multiple things that her daughter shouldn’t do, but instead of being restrictive, the purpose of the letter is to empower and educate her daughter.
“I want to raise a daughter who is as confident as she is kind, who fights for those who can’t fight for themselves, who isn’t afraid to speak her mind and work hard to make the world a better place,” said Toni, the mother.
“Someone who is a lover of justice and believes change can happen.”
She decided to write the letter because her daughter was starting kindergarten this year and she didn’t want her to have the same experience that she did when she was at school.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
― Bernard M. Baruch
