Sit down with your daughter and watch her favorite TV show, then discuss the issues raised in the show. Know what media she is consuming. When she is at an appropriate age, watch films and documentaries with her that address serious issues from human trafficking in films like Taken to the exploitation of teenage girls in the international modeling industry in the documentary Girl Model.
Joining or creating a mother/daughter book club is another way to select media that matters. It also makes it easier to talk about issues by talking about them through the characters.
This is a short excerpt from my book, The Way of the Warrior Mama: The Guide to Raising and Protecting Strong Daughters.
