There are so many women I meet that say they have a sense of humor, but they really don't. Teach your daughter that the "Queen Bees" and "Wanna Bees" and "mean girls" are a waste of time and she should just invest in one or two great friends. Don't allow her to pierce or tattoo her body until she's on her own. Teach your daughter that her choices in life are limitless.She really can do anything - except maybe use the Men's Restroom.
She might end up lonely at times, but at least she won't be a doormat. Teach your daughter that "fish lips" photos are never appropriate and never attractive. Teach your daughter to value herself enough to defend herself - physically and verbally. "Boys come and go, but girlfriends are forever." Still true. Teach your daughter that having her underwear and half her ass hanging out the back of her jeans is not attracting anyone substantial nor does it make her look smart - even in the library. Teach your daughter that smart girls get further in life than slutty girls. Teach your daughter to walk away from the teen magazines. Encourage her to get out and see the world, live on her own and figure out who she is and what she wants in a partner before she settles down. Teach your daughter that there's nothing wrong with staying home on a Friday night and reading a good book, but try to get her to read more than just Chick Lit. This book really empowers women to spot danger signals.
Let your daughter watch "The Burning Bed." She'll never forget it and she'll always know she has "options" if she finds herself in an abusive relationship. Teach your daughter to go easy on the plastic surgery. Teach your daughter to never steal her best friend's boyfriend. There is so much pressure put on young girls these days to look pretty or hot it's nauseating. Unfortunately in the world we live in, this is an important gift to have. Teach your daughter to beat the boys at their own games. Teach your daughter to be able to laugh at herself and have a sense of humor.
We began to notice that the women who played hard to get, either deliberately or by accident, were the ones who got the guys, while the women who asked guys out or were too available were the ones who got dumped.
We put two and two together, and wrote and wrote, and that’s how The Rules were born!
In another passage, he promises readers: 'No longer do poverty, sickness, addiction, and fear have free course to rule and reign in your life.
You no longer have to allow the circumstances of marital discord, rebellious children, or unemployment to dominate your household.'Mr Long and Dollar were among six televangelists investigated by Iowa U. Senator Chuck Grassley from 2007 to 2010, following questions about personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by megachurch pastors and their families.
We had no idea The Rules would become a bestseller…
we just wanted to help women stop making mistakes and get the men of their dreams—and that’s what we still do now, 20 years later!
Like most women our age, we were career-minded with our own apartments, but we also wanted to get married.
