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 work for Girl Scouts and so I am fortunate enough to promote GIRL POWER for a living! I think GS is one of the most underused resources for older girls. Most people think that once a girl is in middle and high schools that they leave GS, however that is when girls need it most!! My 6h grade girl is still involved and plans to continue until she graduates high school.

 

The saddest thing for me is seeing how many parents are willing to volunteer to run a Boy Scout den or troop but will not step up and do the same for their daughters. It's sad!

Well, I will confess I always spoke to my child upon conception and their awaking time from day 1.  The day that began to break my heart was when they would tell me I don't know what I am talking about and they were influenced by other Mothers.  I resented all those that spoke around me with my girls and never spoke with me of issues or happenings.  No one can give us back any of the past time of life.  I love and miss them more than they will ever know.  WHY?  Because they were my daughters.

We do talk about this, and I let my girls know that they are beautiful inside and out.  My ten year old especially has a horrible time seeing herself that way because of the mean kids that she used to go to school with who always called her ugly because it was fun to make her cry.
