I tell my daughter that she is beautiful but I also tell her that she is brilliant, which is just as important, if not more important.
I tell her she can conquer the world and no one can take her brilliance away from her. That she should never be afraid to show the world how strong and smart she she is. I tell her that she should never let a man tell her she is anything less than perfect and one day she will find a man that admires her strength, and intelligence more than her beauty. I also tell her to never settle for someone that doesn't make her smile when she thinks of them.
I tell this to my daughter on a regular basis.
I want her to grow up strong and independent! I want her to find happiness in herself and not feel she needs to seek approval from those around her. To be confident in her own skin.
What do you tell your daughters?
This is my beautiful, smart, strong and talented daughter.
