Huffington Post - over 1 year
Dr. Jill Biden knows a few things about raising strong children. The former second lady is mom to Ashley Biden and stepmom to Hunter and the late Beau Biden. At a launch party for Ashley’s new philanthropic clothing line, Livelihood, her mom spoke about empowering young women. “I think the most important thing as a mom, and also a teacher, is to give kids confidence,” she told PopSugar. “And I tried that with Ashley because confidence is very important — especially for women. Girls need to be strong because they have to keep it together and handle a lot more responsibilities right now.” Dr. Biden, who is an author and college professor, offered some tangible advice to parents. “I think it’s about positive reinforcement every single day, and I suggest that to moms, as a mom,” she said, crediting her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, for his commitment to this practice.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidibl...
