We like the way that Leah Froehle thinks. When we stumbled upon her list of 101 Things I Will Teach My Daughters on Thought Catalog , we thought that it was yet another iteration of the same list we'd seen a thousand times before. Instead, it's a spot-on summary of many of life's most important lessons — from the silly, to the sentimental, to the serious. Leah's list of 101 thoughts that every girl needs to know gets to the core of what it means to be a confident, smart, self-assured woman. We've pulled out 10 of our favorite highlights below.
