Resources for Parents

As a parent, you may never be sure what your daughter will grow up to be – a scientist, a teacher, a business leader, etc. – but you certainly play an enormous role in who your daughters becomes. Regardless of her age, you want her to grow up to be a self-confident, strong, and compassionate person who respects herself and others, makes good decisions, is open to new challenges, and uses her skills and talents to make her world a better place. You want her to build strong friendships, be a leader, and put her values into practice in her everyday life. Girls Scouts provides the programming and environment to help lead your daughter down this path.
