The Girl Store: Buy a Girl Her Life Back

I love the idea of The Girl Store: Buy a Girl Her Life Back. With a gift through their website, you can provide an opportunity for a girl in India to stay in school and avoid early marriage or even worse, sex slavery. Yes, it does still happen. Mothers might suggest a gift through The Girl Store for Mothers’ Day. This gift won’t wilt as soon as the flowers.

You might also take the time to talk with your young daughters about healthy sex and contrast the life she has with what a few girls experience. I think we need to keep a global perspective before our children. Grandmas and grandpas, and dads as well, can get involved.

If you do talk about what happens to some girls in India, be sure to talk as well about India’s rapid growth and rich history and culture. We don’t want our children to think only bad things happen in India.

If your daughters are older, you can also talk about sex slavery in this country. Nicholas Kristof writes about this problem: http://tinyurl.com/cbfsa2o
