Why Having a Bossy Girl is a Good Thing

We all know that it’s annoying when someone constantly bosses us around. We also all know that sometimes girls can be bossy. This is discussed, hashed out and paraded around like all the other stereotypes about girls and hey, it’s a pretty true stereotype.

But it’s also an unfair stereotype.

We love to drag girls through the mud for being bossy and b*tchy at a young age, but we find it heroic, amazing, sexy, and “part of the job” when a man or boy is bossy.

He’s being a leader.

Our girls are being bossy little tyrants.

Enough already.

As a grown woman with a bit of bossiness to her, I am the mom of a girl who is also bossy. Sometimes, it’s absolutely annoying. Through action, example, and discussion, my daughter and I go over the importance of leading and taking turns. Giving other people a chance to take charge and why we should try playing other people’s games, etc. She sees my happy and strong friendships and I try to model by example as best I can.

    I always won leadership awards in school when i was young. I see my daughter following that. As i got further into adulthood the sterotypes and other ‘straightup’ bitchy bossy moms took hold of my opinion of myself. Ive cow towed to soooo many dysfunctional people over the years so i wouldnt be considered a ‘bitch’ even tho im simply terrified of hurting anyones feelings. Its left me a shell of who i used to be. I hope the world doesnt take hold of my daughters abilities like it did mine.
