We can now officially meet in video and audioplatforms, which is awesome, and I can't wait to connect with you anywhere.In fact, what I'm more happy about is that now we're prone to more audiencesand it means more mamas, so we're...

I mean things likechanging my podcast hosting platform, starting a YouTube channel, someapplication update for the development team, some business related tasks. Youknow all of them were so time consuming for me, but you know, most of them areone and done, and I'm more than ready day in and day out to work at my MamaNest,which is my passion project. And to give you mamas a life update of minethat I'm super happy about, you know, I...

...could eventually find a perfect trainerfor my daughter, so she's going to nursery four days a week, each day forthree hours and if you do a quick calculation, it means that now I havetwelve extra hours per week, ready for me carved out to focus on my projectswhile my daughter is having fun with her trainer, and that's unbelievablygreat for me. Talking about my sweet little princess, I've lately found thatthere is a really interesting fact about me. You know my, little girl isjust around three and she's still really young, but some of the time whenI'm talking with others about my girl that, for example, she's doing theseshe's now behaving like that, I often subconsciously anticipate herfuture in my mind. The way that I like it to be. She would be for example so confident,She would be an effective person, She would be...

...such a strong woman in the future. Andbelieve it or not, I see that she would be a change maker in the future. Itmakes me feel like I'm over the moon so proud of her and some of the times itmakes me even cry softly. Is it the same for you mamas out there? Why are we sosentimental about the future of our children, especially our girls? Are youalso this much sensitive about their future life? It seems to us moms thatour children are like grown ups for us, when it comes to their future, when itcomes to realizing their dreams, and we want all the best for them. Without shadowof a doubt, most of us women, had been through some sort of genderdiscrimination in our lives, and especially the ones living indeveloping countries might even perceive this more. Maybe we've beenliving with restrictive parents, maybe we've been behaved differentlycomparing boys. And I don't know, we've...

...been forbidden to do the exact likeactivities that our male counterparts could do and we couldn't do. Maybewe've been behaved by the society in a way that we felt like we were not asstrong as men, as effective as men, so we felt like we're not as successfulas them. You know, I myself had the experience ofliving in a developing country and actually I was born in a developingcountry, and let me tell you that, although I had not directly beenbehaved like that, but I've been grown up in a society with this dominantculture that women are weak. They can't have considerable achievements, theycan't do anything important in their lives and unfortunately, unfortunately, a lot of women have beenconfronted by some sort of deteriorating behaviorsthat gave rise to their frustration,...

...disappointment and resentment. The way that it even made womenthemselves to think that yeah they cannot be successful. They are noteffective, they're not worthwhile! And lots of other disappointedperspectives in life. when I look at the lives of a lot of women, especially inmy country, I'm badly irritated by how innocently they're forgetting theirown dreams and goals day in and day out. once they were a child and had lots ofbig dreams for themselves and now what? A lot of women are really trulysacrificed these days. Mama, you may hear me, born in acompletely developed country with a different background, and you may notbe able to understand me. You may wonder that is it still the case in2021?! And I'm here to...

...tell you that yes, unfortunately yes.Of course, there are so many families that tried, trying and will try toempower their girls, but still the majority of women are prone to theirunfair debilitation from this society. Their parents might behave them in thisway and now their husbands. That are grown up boys that were grown up withthe exact same culture of women debilitation, behave them in this way. Ieven know a lot of women that got married with a man who beautifullypretends that he's such a supportive man, he believes in gender equality andall that matter stuff, but when it comes to action, he was the exact samerestrictive person that imitates the culture pattern. Okay, girls. I didn'tmean to talk about this stuff to just make it down, but exactly in contrary,I wanted to narrate these to make us...

...more mindful of the importance of ourrole now that we are a mom. The girl's International Day is not aday to just buy a present for our girls. But to be more mindful of their future. How do we want them to be behaved inthe future? in what culture do we want them to be raised? And what do we wantthem to be when they get older? when they turn into women and thenmoms. You know, most of us are really busythese days, trying to meet just our children's material needs. You know wereally have big dreams for them. We want them to be someone like a goodpianist, a doctor, professor, So we provide them with as much facilities aswe can to help them become their best in future. I know that you know, butlet's repeat this with ourselves:...

These dreams are not big enough for ourgirls. because even the most talented andskilled girls cannot thrive in a culture that is telling women thatyou are not that strong. So, I wanted to remind us moms in this day, to alterour dreams for our girls from becoming the best in any area of their lives, to becoming the best version ofthemselves. To create an atmosphere at home for them to feel that they're loved.they're valued and accepted, even if they're not doing great in theirstudies, or any other area that we hope to be great at, in order to justreinforce this belief for them that they're strong, because when we behavethem as they're not enough, it directly contributes to their lack ofconfidence. So, why are we waiting?...

We should stop this attitude. Also, weshould create true values for them in life. Why we emphasize on being atop rank student in the university or at school? when we know that being a topstudent does not mean being a happy person. And the limit is the sky when we wantto think about the day to day examples to prove this. I know that your guidedMama. So, I talked about a mindset shift forourselves as parents, in our parenting style. From valuating just the educationimportance or things like that to valuating the importance of becominghappy, strong, confident and effective people for our girls. And the lastpoint that I wanted to tell today, that is by far the most important ofthem is that it may seem repetitive, but...

...just let iterate that there is noinfluence as that of the mother. So, why are we wasting our time andenergy searching for the best teachers, the best classes, or literally thebest ideas to teach our daughters to be strong, confident, positive, effectiveand so on? Mama, let me whisper, it's just about us mom. We can directly influence our girls andit's a blessing, because it can be a huge motivation for us too, to change,to become strong, to become confident, and to become a change maker, becausethis is the only way that we can raise change makers. We need to model the appropriateapproach in life for them, and it means...

...that we should be more resilient. Even more than our husbands, because wehave a lot of room to realize that we can do anything. And make others tobelieve that we can do anything. it's about fulfilling what we're calledto do in our lives. Apart from any challenges that we may face in thispath. we should not wait for any one tofacilitate our path. We should suffice on ourselves and playa strong woman role for our girls, and we can do that. Happy girls day to all of our cutegirls and to all of us cute moms.
