I shouldn't tell my daughter she's pretty?

My sister-in-law just "informed" me that me telling my 1 year old daughter that she's pretty is going to make her materialistic, vain, and promiscuous.

Um, eff you and the episode of Dr. Phil that your psychobabble came from.

*giggle*....I can't be the only one who thinks this is ridiculous? can I? Why do ugly women always hate on those of us who don't look like we got hit by a truck?

I was with you until you decided to insult "ugly" people. I'm the type that has been called pretty or even beautiful by some and actually told I look like I was hit by a truck by others. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Why go from her extreme and take it all the way over to your extreme?

LOL!  I've told my dd she's beautiful from day one, she's now 11 almost 12 and she's not materialistic, vain or promiscuous...  She's confident and she has great self esteem.

I'm not insulting anyone. Just an observation. If you were offended, I'm sorry.

I tell my dd she's beautiful, I tell my dh he's handsome.  I also tell 'em that everyone is beautiful in their own way.  :)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder we are all beautiful in our own way.

I tell my daughters they are the most beautiful girls in the world but also that beauty is in the eye f the beholder.

I am glad you are not listening to your sister in law! Tell your little one she is beautiful everyday! I do to mine!! Because she is! inside and out!! Most young girls feel like they are not pretty enough, skinny enough and all that, and it has to stop! Just because you make your girl feel good about herself does not mean she is going to grow up to be a b***h!

I agree with you. Part of our job as parents is to give our kids confidence. I always tell my girls how beautiful and smart and sweet they are. I would even if they weren't ;)
