    - Girls need strong male role models that they can turn to in times of need and trouble. I was one of the lucky ones. Though I did not have a strong male role model at any time in my life (my father was very uninvolved with my brother and me), I turned into a solid, strong individual. I can't say the same for most girls, though. Later in life, these girls might look for the wrong types of men in order to fill the void left as a child. All children need good role models; a good male role model will love his daughter, constantly tell her how wonderful and special she is, and take a very active interest in her life. If a girl is exposed to a good man at an early age, she will later marry a good man who will ensure that her children are healthy and happy. This ensures the health and happiness of future generations.

    - Always remind her how loved she is and how special she is. I think that while all children need this attention, girls do especially. In this day and age, girls are much more likely to suffer from low self-esteem. We need to encourage them to love who they are.

    - Instill her with pride in her heritage! Whatever nationality she is, expose her to her culture and her people and encouarge her to be proud. If she is instilled with this pride from an early age, it will be more difficult for her to be influenced by "outside sources" Give her a sense of identity by participating in cultural events that are unique to your nation/heritage. I have always regreted that my parents weren't more involved in our heritage and I think that being more involved would have given me a much better sense of identity.

    I hope this helps!

    If I think of any more, I'll send you another message.

    Since you are not sure of her age, you may want to seperate the egg yolk from the white and just feed the cooked yolk for now. The white is not recommended for infants under a year, because of the potential for developing food allergies. Also, if the packaged baby foods give problems, you can try making your own baby foods (mashed potatoes, cooked mashed carrots, etc.) If she is having problems digesting foods and such, then you may have to completely take her off foods and then slowly begin re-introducing foods into her diet from scratch. See this guide for starting solids: http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/infan...ingsolids.html

    Also on this site is some good tips for nutrition: http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/infan...nutrition.html

    If you are unable to find out her exact age, you could probably estimate based upon developmental milestones (physical, language, emotional, etc.)
    Language development: http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/voic...ndlanguage.asp
    Physical: http://missourifamilies.org/features...arenting11.htm

    One thing to keep in mind is that many of these milestones use the average age, but there is an entire range that the event could occur within. For example, on average infants begin walking around 12 months, but the range for walking is 8-17 months. Because of this, if you are going to estimate her age based upon where she is developmentally, you should look at several areas and not just one event. Also consider her height and weight compared to the averages, but keep in mind that these factors are also not good indicators alone. One 12 month old might weigh close to 30 lbs., while another may be only 16 lbs.

    Congrats on getting initiated into parenting through diaper changing. My newborn did it to me the other day as well. One day you will look back on this and laugh at the time your little girl "got you" during a diaper change.
    The gloves you are using must be difficult to change a diaper in. If you need to use gloves, I'd recommend disposable gloves (you can buy in the first aid section of most stores): http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xDN-health..._gloves~V-rows

    Another great contraption for the diapers is this thing called a diaper genie. It is a diaper pail that seals away the diapers like little sausages, and eliminates odor. Currently, I am using cloth diapers until my newborn gets older, but when I start using disposables, I'm going to be getting a diaper genie. http://www.playtexbaby.com/diapergenie/ I had one before and there is no odor. If it does start to have an odor, you can always buy little deoderizer stick ups that will stick to the bottom inside of it.

    This forum seems difficult to use. What means Quote ?

    My advice to raising girl: Do not force yuo or her to do anything that you not feel be your own thing.

    Buy her lot of books. No matter, what books. When she reads, she thinks.

    My mom read books to us when we were babies, and it made us smarter than most kids when we entered school. I think talking to babies and interacting with them allot is good and increases their intelligence.

    I originally sent this to lei.talk in a private message, but I decided to post it here.

    I'd be more than happy to talk to you. My childhood was pretty great, I was an only child with a very active imagination. But, my teen years is when I started having problems.
    I was diagnosed with depression and Borderline Personality Disorder (it's similar to bi-polar). I started cutting myself and even mutilating my face. I've been in the hospital 6 times in the last couple of years for being suicidal and self injuring.

    This is the odd thing. I was a straight A student, on the honor roll, did volunteer work in my community, never did drugs, won voice and piano competitions, I was basically a goody two shoes. But, my parents still pushed me to be better. They pushed way to hard. And it added tremendously to my stress.

    My mom was the worst about it, and we are just recently trying to build back a relationship. No matter what I did, how hard I tried, it was never good enough for her.

    Needless to say, all these problems put my college plans on hold. But, I'm starting back to classes next Monday, my problems are getting better, and I think I will be successful this time.

    My advice, is to love the child no matter what. Don't push too hard, let them follow their own dreams, even if you might not agree. Don't always act like a parent, act like a friend. If you ever see the warning signs of depression or anxiety, get help as soon as possible. And always be supportive.

    Hope this helps,
    Wassail, Tiffany

    hi all,
    i raised all three of my children on my own for 12 years, two are teenage girls, and one is a teenage boy,
    i didnt have a very good child hood due to my parents splitting when i was 2, i was forever passed around the family and went to lots of different schools around the country, so when i had my children i decided that no way would i put them through what i'd been through, so i surrounded them with lots of love a safe enviroment and lots of nationalist education, i am very proud of all of them, i can honestly say. they have grown up with there mind focused on fighting for our nationalism survival,
    we are also best friends, i find it very important to talk to them and be very close, it brings a bond no one can seperate.

    im sure you will be fine, take everyday as it comes and just enjoy every precious minute with her.

    I have an 11 month old little girl, she is my first girl after having two boys. So far I can't see any difference in behavoir between her and my boys at this age. I hear that girls get their feelings hurt more easiler when they learn to talk, and they can be a bit more shy, but then again it's all individual.

    You should have no problem once you get used to being a parental figure. I would suggest when she gets older (pre-teens) that you find her an older female friend to learn from. I would suggest the same if you were a woman raising a boy alone. They need the interaction and guidence that someone of the same gender can give them.

    Kids need love, if you have that, you are on your way. Everything else you will learn as you go. Always take advice from other parents, but never believe they are better parents than you are!

    Good luck!

    I have an 18 year old step daughter and have been through the difficult teens with her.
    It is not easy but to take time to talk and listen to her seemed to help us throng most problems.
