Raising Confident Daughters Day 3: Be Positive

Posted by   + Show Post

Your daughter watches everything you do – so today's activity is to STOP doing some things. Don't let her see you be hard on yourself!

Here are a few things to stop doing in her ear-shot:

  • Don't look in the mirror and sigh about how lumpy or awful you feel.
  • Don't complain about your floppy bits.
  • Don't say "I shouldn’t be eating this because I don’t want to put on weight."


What should you stop doing?

I wear makeup everyday and if she asks why I tell her so I can look pretty for daddy. I need to think of a different reason why so she doesn't think she needs makeup to be pretty.

 We seem to be on a perpetual "diet" in my house, and I think we need to really stop using that word. Eating healthy is my goal, losing weight is just a perk.

in my house we call it eating healthy. you shouldnt diet you should just adopt a new lifestyle. i found this out the hard way through years of dieting! now i just call it eating healthy and living better! dieting puts one in the "im fat" rut that will cause one to fail then they lose self worth a bit at a time.
