Give your girls a chance and lead them in the right direction.


More fathers have to be actively involved in their girls/children lives as fathers are needed to assist girls to understand that they are
beautiful/worthy/wonderful without sex being involved as well as how
they should be treated by the opposite sex.

More men need to show respect for women/girls by not objectifying them or calling them out of their names as well as becoming an ally to women
when they see other men doing these disrespectful behaviors.



More positive male/female role models needed in the community in general; so that girls/children do not have to look towards movie
stars/musicians/ sports figures etc. as their only role models.

Some parents have to set better examples for their children i.e. of not smoking, drinking, having multiple partners and doing drugs etc. as most
children usually do what you do vs. what you say.

Some parents have to decide to be parents vs. their children's friend or holiday parents
Encourage more girls/children to get involved in church or other religious/spiritual activities.

Encourage more girls to get involved in community activities, and volunteering at an early age.

We have to teach more girls about self love; self respect and build their self esteem, so that they know they have more to offer than just their
body.

Encourage more girls to stay focus on their education, and some parents may have to get more involved in their children' education.

Encourage more girls to participate in more math and science as technology is the path of the future.

Encourage more girls to get involved in sports (most girls who are involved in sports have a lower rate of teen pregnancy).

Provide more opportunities for girls to advance financially through hard work vs. just believing that video girls, dating a drug dealer/rapper, or
becoming a stripper etc. are their only options.


Discuss with girls that some rap music, and some music in general are written in a way that display a misogyny attitude or is disrespectful to women.

Communicate, communicate, and communicate with girls/children about respectable/appropriate behaviors every chance we get.

Talk about the birds and bees/sex ed at an early age.

Some women/men have to be more selective about whom they decide to have sex with deadbeat bfs or gfs usually turns out to be deadbeat parents.

Some single moms/parents may need to decrease the number of bfs or gfs that are coming in and out of the house (to avoid possible abuse physically
and sexually, and to set the examples of how girls interact with the
opposite sex).
Some moms/parents have to learn how to put their childrens needs first before a man/woman's needs.

Some parents may need to change how they address their girls/children, if you are calling them the " Bitc* Nigg or the Whor* words or any other
degrading name --this will probably have a direct reflection on how the
children view themselves.

More people have to reaffirm the concept of " Each one, teach, one" and reaffirm the attitude of it takes a Village to raise a child---perhaps
we also need more " Big Mama" back in our children lives.

What are we willing to do today to assist some girls to get on the right track? Let's change the direction for some girls by using the Each
one, teach one concept.
