I hope you’re all having a good day, celebrating the dads you love, letting them know how important they are.
Because they are. For most of us, parenting is the most important thing we’ll ever do. It is how we will have the greatest impact on the future, both for our own children and for the world.
In light of that, there is something worth watching on tv tonight: Girl Rising. CNN will be airing it at 9pm EST.
There are some excellent fathers featured in it. Moms, too. Parents who are doing everything they can to ensure a better future for their daughters.
We saw it in March, with a small group of girls, and I wrote about it here. I stated then that I’d have been comfortable taking girls as young as ten, but I’ve since spoken with a few people who felt ten is too young. Use your own judgment, of course. You might not want to discuss these issues yet, but I assure you there is nothing graphic in their presentation.
One more time, here is the preview.
If you watch it, I’d love to hear what you thought.
