Have you talked to your daughter about self esteem lately?

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi ladies,

Have you talked to your daughter about self esteem lately?

teen girl

Dove invites women everywhere to join us for the Third Annual Dove Self-Esteem Weekend (Like the page to find out more) taking place October 5-7 nationwide.

Did you know:

  • When girls feel bad about their looks more than 60 percent globally (age 15 to 17) avoid normal daily activities such as attending school, going to the doctor, or even giving their opinion
  • You can help a girl develop a positive relationship with beauty –it all starts with a conversation

Visit Facebook.com/Dove to access free tools and resources to motivate and inspire a girl in your life.

You can download the “Let’s Talk” toolkit, discover how to talk to a girl in your life about self-esteem and find out how to overcome conversation obstacle, search through real-life scenarios of when you could have a talk with a girl in your life and find out how to replicate a “Let’s Talk” rally in your neighborhood

Dove has reached more than 8 million girls with self-esteem programming so far and with your help we can reach 15 million by 2015.

I agree. So many girls want to be like someone else.

Quoting KristinRox:

Its such an important thing to do, to teach young girls not to compare themselves to anyone else. They have to be comfy in their own skin... you hit the nail on the head. 

Quoting elasmimi:

I have a 6 y/o who already has self esteem issues. I encourage as much as possible to see her good points, and not compare herself to others.

I talk to my daughter about this stuff all the time.  Especially when the other girls are being mean and excluding her.

Sounds great :] So far I dont have to worry about too much because my daughter is 5. But she already worries about looking cool or wearing stuff that her friends will like.

No. But she is only 3 so it hasn't been a conversation we've needed to have.

We did a big thing about this recently. My oldest spent a week with her aunt in another state, because she believed my encouragement was just "Mom stuff." So, she went on a week with my SIL, and she got a real boost from the experience. They did makeovers (she doesn't wear heavy makeup) and had hair done and talked about guys and how to know if they are interested... In the meantime, I just took my youngest to have her hair done last night, and she looks fab and knows it.
