Raising young girls is not an easy job. Parents are constantly faced with the challenge of making sure their daughters feel comfortable in an age where the internet inundates them with images of women who are tall, thin, and usually white. And if your daughter doesn't fit society's standard of beauty, it's easy for her to feel less than beautiful. If you have a young girl, you should know the ways to help make your daughter more comfortable in her own skin.
You can help your daughter by allowing her to see you complimenting yourself, praising her on attributes that have nothing to do with her looks, and avoiding negative talk about other women. All of these things will set a foundation of positive self-esteem that will stay with your daughter as she grows up.
The pressure to maintain the ideal standard of beauty is real, but it's never too early to begin encouraging your daughter to be confident in herself. Start building healthy self-esteem now, and you will help your daughter for the rest of her life.
