The other day my 4 year old daughter spent the day at a friend's house. I have known these people since we first moved to Kentucky. This morning she came downstairs really upset and told me that she was ugly and fat. I reassured her that she is the most beatiful girl I have ever known. But she insisted she was ugly and fat. I asked her who told her this and she told me that my friend's little boy told her. She said that my friend tole her son and he told Kylee. What can I do to get her to realize she is beautiful? She used to think she was a princess and ballerina. Now she doesn't because as she said, "Princesses are beautiful. I can't be one if I'm ugly." What to do?!!

Give lots of praise and encouragement. Check out these confidence building books....but they really need to go along with the encouragement you give her. http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=17
