How old is your daughter and do you think she has high self-esteem?

no bias, I have very cute kids. my dd gets told she's pretty so much I feel like I have to counteract it. I'm pretty sure I have only complimented her on her personality and intelligence.I want her to have compliments that actually mean something that lasts.

No you aren't the only one. I of course tell my dd she is beautiful but I also make sure she knows that being smart and nice is a lot better. She is such a goofball, so fun and sweet. Has lots of friends. Same goes for my ds.  My kids get lots of compliments of all kinds. I really make sure I build my kids up as much as possible. I always had very low self esteem and very few compliments from anyone growing up.

Does it has to be about beauty? Am I the only one out there who tells my daughter she's smart and funny rather than making it all about being beautiful?
