We need to teach our daughters and granddaughters to distinguish between a man who flatters her and a man who compliments her, a man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her, a man who views her as property and a man who views her properly, a man who lusts after her and a man who loves her, a man who believes he is God's gift to women and a man who remembers that a woman was God's gift to man.
Here's a good exercise...take one of the above discriminators and ask the young girl, "What would that look like?" And let her answer be the start point for a conversation.
For example, "When a man views a woman as property, what would that look like?"
And, "When a man views a woman properly, what would that look like?"
That ought to exercise her pre-frontal cortex!

And for teen boys...
