Girls are sensitive to injustice. They forgive mistakes if they are sure you are trying to be fair. They look for fairness in how responsibilities are shared, in handling of disagreements, and in your responses to performance and accomplishment. 

  • When possible, ask the girls what they think is fair before decisions are made. 
  • Explain your reasoning and show why you did something. 
  • Be willing to apologize if needed.  
  • Try to see that responsibilities as well as the chances for feeling important are equally divided. 
  • Help girls explore and decide for themselves the fair ways of solving problems, carrying out activities, and responding to behavior and accomplishments.
