When it comes to my daughter, she there is no doubt that she is comfortable in her own skin.
She is only 5 years old and has already established a firm sense of her personality in the things that she does.
She likes things girly.
- hair clips
- glittery shoes.
She likes things boyish.
- digging in the dirt
She wears what she wants.
She does crazy things to her hair.
Tell her something doesn’t match and you have provided her with the biggest compliment ever.
She definitely has her own sense of style.
She’s not afraid to play like a boy.
She doesn’t let traditional gender roles define her, and she doesn’t even realize it.
Which is why we encourage her to PLAY LIKE A GIRL.
For us that means playing in whatever way is comfortable to her. If she wants to play baseball in a tutu, by all means. If she wants to play basketball with swimming goggles on, have at it!
Playing like a girl is about empowering her to believe that she can achieve her goals, no matter what.
Verizon FiOS wants to help girls realize their potential and help them see beyond their gender. Girls can play sports too! I can totally see my daughter doing what the girl in this video does in order to show up her older brother in sports.
My daughter has said that she wants to play football one day but first she wants to play soccer. So this spring we will be cheering her on as she plays like a girl! I can’t wait.
