Raising Confident Daughters Day 1: Open Up Conversation

Posted by   + Show Post

Self-esteem doesn't mean feeling good about yourself all of the time. People who have strong self-esteem are able to recognize and understand their feelings. It's important to be able to talk about things with your daughter when she's happy and when she's down.

Sit down and talk to your daughter about what bothers her and what makes her proud! What is your daughter most proud of?

My daughter is very proud of her grades she is a honor roll student. However she has issues with little things like she always thinks she has fat legs. She really just has athletic legs. The worst is when we went to the DRs and the scale said she weighed 86lbs which she thought was fat. She is not fat at all!! She is almost 12 and only in size 10/12 so I wouldnt hardly say that is fat!! This all stems from when she wore a dress to a party one time (it was so cute gymboree) and literally it was forever ago and another little girl said she looked fat. Ug she was so excited to buy that dress and never wore it again!! I hate how mean kids can be!!

What great answers I've read! My DD's are 4 & 1-1/2. My 4yo is proud of her dancing. My 1-1/2yo just smiled :-)

I ask my daughter everyday what's going on. I ask her if there is anything that we need to talk about or deal with. Last schoolyear, I had to deal with kids bullying my daughter, one of her classmates SLAPPED her face and another BIT her. I contacted a lawyer because my child refused to go back to school. I felt as a parent that I was letting her down, but after setting up a meeting with the schools' Vice Principal and getting to the bottom of the situation, I thought I was gonna have to sue the school and district for not taking care of my child. Since then, we talk everyday about whatever she's feeling. She LOVES science and wants to learn more. She LOVES school and can't wait for it to start again. To be honest, I can't wait either.

My daughter is proud of her dancing.  For me I see that it provides her physical activity which improves mood ingeneral but as she gets better and better at it it improves her confidence.  She teaches young students now and this will be a gift she has to offer for the rest of her life

I'm very proud to be the mother of these three beauitful girls. They are amazing to watch as they grow into sweet little ladies. I cannot wait for the years to come!

My daughter is still young, only 5, but she is proud of knowing her ABC's.

She's only 2 months old but I'd say if she could understand the question and provide me an answer, she would say that her voice is what she's most proud of. Her coos are beautiful.
