What Girl ScoutsIs All AboutSince 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA has givengirls the tools to lead, break barriers, andcreate positive change. Your G.I.R.L. (Go-getter,Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) is part of a legacy of girls and young womenwho dream big and do bigger. When you take the potential every girl has within herand add our girl-led, skill-building programming; unmatched leadership experiences;and caring adults whose networks can truly open doors, you get the power of Girl Scouting.By Girls. For Girls.Everything your Girl Scout does—whether it’s climbing mountains, makingher voice heard, or designing new technology—has been created especially for, and is tested by, girls.Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.Your girl will develop a strong sense of self, demonstratepositive values, seek challenges, solve significant problems in her community, and establish healthyrelationships. These aren’t just good qualities—they’re the leadership skills that will last a lifetime.3-2-1 Action!Growing UpAt Girl Scouts, “Can I?” turns into “I will!” as your girl transformsher ideas into action, turns her questionsinto adventures, and grows her confidencethrough practice.

Bring the Strengthof Girl Scouts Homeand MagicWe’ve got your back when it comes to teaching your girl positive values! Read on forexamples of the standards your girl agrees to through the Girl Scout Law, and simple waysto amplify them even more in your own family.Be Honest Lying is a natural (and normal!) thing for kids to do, so it’snearly inevitable that your girl will fib at some point. If your daughter has lied,calmly ask her what or who may have been hurt by it. If she’s too young tounderstand, walk her through how her actions might have affected others.Be Fair When your girl identifies something that’s unfair, ask herto explain what a better solution would look like and how it wouldwork. There may be several ways to solve the same problem,so help her think through as many as she can come upwith and decide which one she thinks is the mostfair for all involved.Be Friendly and Helpful Encourageall family members to look for ways to help aroundthe house. Rotate chores so everyone’s contributing equallyand nothing’s seen as a “boy” or “girl” task. Your girl may not lovetrash day or dish duty, but it will give her pride in a job well done andbuild her appreciation for helpers in her life.Be Considerate and Caring Model thoughtfulness for yourgirl by asking about her feelings and truly listening when she answers.Discuss the importance of putting yourself in someone else’s shoesand trying to understand their point of view before decidinghow to react in any given situation.Be Courageous and StrongTalk to her about a time when you were nervous aboutspeaking up for what you believed was right but did it anyway.Ask if she’s ever been in a similar situation and how it went, thenremind her that sometimes we have to be brave to make a difference.Be Responsible for What She Says and Does When younotice not-so-awesome behavior in your girl, take time to talk with her about itand understand what’s going on rather than simply punishing her for her actions.Talking about her actions and why she takes them will help her do better next time.Her life can be complicated—raising her doesn’t have to be.
