As a mother of four girls, self-esteem is always on my mind. I’m always trying to be cautious about what I say to them about their clothing, personal hygiene, their behavior, what they eat — everything! I don’t want to accidentally cause any self-conscious thoughts. I want them to confident and sure of themselves.
So much of what our girls are facing today is like our worst childhood moment multiplied. The internet, no matter how great it may be, is also a great source of pain and disappointment for our girls. There, they see and read too much negativity. I recently learned from Dove that 52% of girls feel that the negative posts, comments, snaps, videos or photos they see on social media damage their confidence*. This is why we have to constantly reinforce their self-esteem in whatever way we possibly can.
We have to lift up our girls! We have to show them how to love themselves, for themselves. We can do this by teaching them and leading by example.
