The day I found out I was having my third daughter, I was thrilled. Not just because all of my favorite baby dresses would get a third wear from a third girl, but because the quotes about raising daughters out there are incredibly empowering. The thought of raising a whole little band of girls who are going to change the world and make a difference? Huge. And clearly, others get it. Having a stockpile of quotes about raising daughters in your back pocket, ready to go whenever you need to share just how special being a #GirlMom is, is totally necessary.
You can also use these quotes for International Day of the Girl. On October 11 every year since 2012 (making this year the 10th anniversary), UNICEF has made this a day to celebrate the girls in your life. And if you’re actually raising your own daughter, International Day of the Girl is practically a holiday. With these quotes about raising daughters and a big list of International Day of the Girl activities, you can lean in hard to your persona as a mother of dragons. And by dragons, I mean girls.
Some of these quotes about raising daughters are funny, some are inspiring, and some are empowering for International Day of the Girl. Just pick your favorite and go forth — raise that daughter! Change the world! And above all, keep her safe and let her know she’s loved.
