In twenty days, I will be dropping my daughter off at the Academy to begin her new life. I want to give her some fatherly advice on how to handle her interaction with the male cadets. We have been connected with current and former female cadets and all of them have relayed some form, mild or strong, of harassment from the men. With the disturbing facts that have been depicted in the Doonesbury comic strip this week, my parent antenna went up and I have to admit that I am nervous about this aspect of her upcoming military life. What would you recommend I tell her to be prepared for a potential conflict; be bold and aggressive and get in their face, report it immediately and risk being ostracized, ignore it? I am really confused and am feeling a bit helpless on guiding her on probably one of our last counseling conversations...being informed is my goal. She is pretty tough both physically and mentally but she has never faced a potential situation that could await her and I want her to be prepared. I could really use some help from all of you, especially parents and/or female cadets. Thanks in advance!
