Little Girls and Tears

If girls are allowed to indulge tears for whatever reason, they will not have mastery over their emotions.  They should be taught that it is wrong to take offense as well as to give offense.  Tears have a place, but they should be rare and brief.  Even in the case of a real loss, such as the death of a loved one, there is a time to cry and a time to cease from crying.  If we don’t watch carefully, tears quickly turn into self-pity and anger.  ~Nancy Wilson (Praise Her in the Gates)
