Victoria Beckham’s advice for Harper is something we should tell all girls

Victoria Beckham has shared the advice she gives to her little girl Harper, and it's a piece of wisdom we should all live by.

The mum was speaking at Forbes Women’s Summit, in New York, when she revealed that she tells the six-year-old daughter that she can achieve anything she wants to, just before she heads off to school.

During her speech, she said: ‘Every day when Harper goes to school, she walks up the school stairs and I give her a kiss. I say, “Harper, you’re a girl, you can achieve anything. You can do anything that you want to do.”‘

The mum-of-four added: ‘That’s my message to her constantly. She knows she can do everything and probably more than her brothers can. We talk about it a lot. She wants to be an inventor and she’s very proud of that. She’s a strong smart woman — little woman.

‘I am still banging on that drum and I am not going to stop. I don’t think any of us want to stop. It’s a very important time for women right now.’

The former Spice Girl also said in her speech that she tells all her children about hard work and following their passions, like her and David have done in their careers.

‘The boys and Harper know that mummy and daddy work really, really hard. We weren’t just given any of this. Getting success is one thing but maintaining success is a whole other thing. They see that we go to work every day and work really hard and they have to work hard at school and their passions whatever that might be.’

Speaking about her family life, the mum added: ‘I try really, really hard. I try hardest to be the best mother. I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David.’
