dear ms b-she said do this


now ms b
this article may really be for your mom and dad to read

i ran across an article by
thats ruth bader ginsberg
the supreme court justice

it is not a political article

its on
how to raise a trail blazing daughter
there are 7 items of advice

heres the link if when you get to read stuff
you can read what the full article said

1   foster a love of reading

well think we all are working real good on that one
books you got

2   teach them to be independent

well ms b
you definitely got that one covered

3   encourage them to seek out great teachers

now ms b
you dont have to look too far
your gma she has that one covered
she is a good one to start with

4   encourage them to turn a deaf ear when needed

now ms b
rbgs motherinlaw pulled her aside at her wedding
she said
my word of advice to you is in a good marriage it helps to
be a little deaf
apparently she used it in her marriage
i know your gma does
probably your mom does
she also used it in her professional career

5   encourage them to set aside their worries
just achieve

well thats what she did
her family wasnt rich
her mom and younger sister died before she was 18
there were few women in law school
few of them ever got to be a federal judge
she just persevered
ms b
thats what we want you to do

6   teach them they can make their own luck

she was demoted when she got pregnant
she was paid less than her male counterparts as a professor
she was up against sexism in her legal career
she well ms b she persevered

7   pray that they marry the right person

now ms b
that one will be up to you
not your mom and dad or gma or me
make a good choice
she apparently did
without his support for her career
she wouldnt have made it

so ms b
do read this article when you get older
there is no politics at all in it
its true no matter what your belief system is

i think if you do all 7 of these
you will be successful
have a happy life
