Can I say your baby is beautiful?
She said they don't want their kids thinking beauty is all they have to offer the world, that they're not smart etc. So what? I don't get that at all, personally. If you want your kids to think they're smart, tell them they're smart! Right? Don't just not tell them they're cute!
I don't know, maybe I'm missing something, but I think it's really important to build my girls' self esteem and help them believe they are beautiful- inside and out. I constantly tell them they're cute and pretty and smart and sweet and how proud I am of them. I really don't think they're gonna get a big head from that, or think they're missing some other important quality.
I think it's sad not to build children up. Thoughts? Am I missing something?
