This chapter didn't stir too much in me. Mainly because I feel like the wounds I carry are more self-inflicted or caused of others than my own parents. One thing I did note for the sake of my daughter was on page 61,
Women learn from their mothers what is means to be a woman, and from their fathers the value that a woman has - the value they have as a woman. If a woman is comfortable with her own femininity, her beauty, her strength, then the chances are good that her daughter will be too.I never really became comfortable with being feminine until my daughter was born. Even right after she was born I tried to avoid dressing her in pink or anything frilly. I just wasn't comfortable with it. As she has grown, I have too. I'm so thankful that she is girlie. She loves all shades of pink, glitter, and manicures! I've come to embrace my femininity because of her, and I pray I can repay the blessing to her as she grows and matures.
