The following is a letter to a 10 year old girl.

Dear Little Girl,

I would like you to remember the following as you live your life and march towards your dreams:
  • The friendships you forge now shall stay with you for life. So make them wisely.
  • Respect your parents even though they may not always be worthy of it.
  • Be as involved in extra-curriculars in school as with studies. You will not regret it later.
  • Let nobody undermine your confidence if you fail in a certain activity.
  • Be close to your siblings even if you might want to rip their arms apart. They will be among your best friends later on.
  • You will have plenty of time to be fashionable once you are an adult. Don't waste your childhood putting on make-up and branded clothes.
  • Fall in love with books. They will never let you be alone. They will never let you down.
  • Respect your teachers. They are doing the best job they possibly can with limited resources.
  • Learn to respect your body. Let no stranger touch it.
  • Develop a hobby be it painting, dancing, whatever.
  • Have plenty of friends both male and female. The interactions would help both of you later.
  • Do not ever lie to your parents.
  • Avoid foul language. Do not associate with people who use foul language.
  • Last, but not the least, enjoy your childhood. It is the only carefree time you have. Do not be in a hurry to grow up too fast, too soon. You will repent later.
