Daughters are not sons! This obvious truth should be a clue that the mentoring of our daughters will not be identical to the mentoring of our sons. If our goal is to prepare our daughters for their callings as wives and mothers, we need to think through the host of unique issues that daughters will face when they get married. If our goal is to have a smooth handoff of our daughters from the authority of the parents to the authority of the husband, then we need to rethink how we train our daughters between High School graduation and marriage. Indeed, those are some of the most significant years for preparing daughters for their calling. Rather than taking our cues from the world and sending our daughters away when they are 18, perhaps we ought to think about the even more significant mentoring that parents might give prior to marriage.
