11. Don't set her up to hate math and science
A lot of parents make the mistake of telling their kids they were never good at math or science when really they just never had encouragement or proper teaching in these fields. I saw it a lot as a teacher. Kids came in expecting themselves to fail at math because it "ran in the family." Empower your girls in these fields by believing they're capable instead of assuming they "got your genes." Chances are, you just weren't ever taught these subjects well in the first place.
