WIRTW #554 (the “triumph” edition)

How do we raise our girls to become confident women? It’s a question I think about a lot as a dad to an almost teenage girl.

🙋‍♀️ We encourage them to pursue their passions.
🙋‍♀️ We get them working collaboratively with other girls.
🙋‍♀️ We put them into positions to gain leadership skills.
🙋‍♀️ We praise their successes.

While I love School of Rock for both of my kids, this is why I especially love it for my daughter.

To see an almost 13-year-old (everyone wish Norah a Happy Birth Day for Monday) command a stage with skill and passion, and with the love, respect, and admiration of her peers, older and younger, fills this dad with a ton of pride and joy.

And it tells me that she’ll be just fine as an adult, whether her journey is through music or otherwise.

So enjoy Norah doing her thing last weekend (along with Donovan’s fly dance moves), taking the lead on Triumph by the Screaming Females.

As for Norah’s own band, Fake ID, you have two chances to see them live over the next few weeks.

  • June 1 @ Ohio Bike Week, in Sandusky. They’ll be on the Scott Gast Memorial Stage, at Columbus Ave. and Water St., from 3:30 - 5 pm. 
  • June 15 @ Crocker Park, in Westlake. They’ll be rocking the square in front of Regal Cinemas from 5:30 - 7 pm.

Both shows are open to the public and free. Keep an eye out for the merch table to grab your official Fake ID t-shirt.

Here’s what I read this week:


HR & Employee Relations


Wage & Hour
