I raised both of my daughers to be their own person. Dont do something because you want to please someone else, you have to please yourself. My daughters both have natural beauty and I have always told them they are beautiful and dont need make up. My 15 year old loved the way she looked. She had beautiful long hair, big hazel eyes, little on the thin side and only about 5'3. My daughter has a horse and she loved wearing her straight leg jeans with her western boots and a t-shirt. this was her style. Her father and new wife have convinced my daughter she looked ugly, unhealthy, too skinny and short to be attractive. My husband convinced her to cut her hair off, wear make up and made her change the way she dressed. She now has an attitude that the way she looked before she was ugly and sickly and it was all my fault. She braggs that she wears make up and looks a lot older than what she is and she thinks she needs it to look pretty. To me I think this is wrong to tell a child you look terrible and you need to change because I say so. Her father made her change her whole style just to please him. You dont tell someone you are ugly and sickly looking. My older daughter was anorexia at the age of 8 because of her father abusing her and telling her she was fat and ugly. My oldest daughter was also on the thin side and in no way she was ever fat or even a little overweight. I see the same thing happeneing all over again with my younger daughter.
Just like to get some opinions of other mothers.
