I think it is very important for parents, especially the girls father, to shower adoration on his daughter. Every woman wants to be lovely (both inside and out). It's important not to neglect every aspect of a child's being (mind, soul and body). You'll see a lot of women settling for guys they shouldn't because that guy makes them feel beautiful and smart. If a father and mother do a good job of setting the standard high, I think we'd see a lot less abused women. We tell our daughters they are beautiful. There is more to beauty then physical attributes. We praise them for their accomplishments and creativity, it is beautiful. True beauty comes from the inside and works its way out. Every now and then you'll see a really beautiful elderly woman, and you know that because her beauty came from more then just youthful looks, her internal beauty has turned into external beauty.

Oh, I agree that it's okay to tell them they're beautiful. I just try to make sure that I really focus on smart and strong. Lots of people tell her she's beautiful (as the article says, the first thing we naturally say to a little girl is something about their appearance).

I think much can be applied to boys.
