Pretty Smart Little Girls
We have all done it. We see a friend, co-worker, or neighbor with their little girl and we compliment her on her outfit or her hair and tell her:
“You look so pretty!”
Of course they are cute, but what message does this send to our daughters, nieces, granddaughters, and the future women of the world? Sometimes all of the attention that is paid to appearance makes girls believe that it is the most important thing.
post highlights one mother’s struggle in keeping her girls well-rounded and focused on their talents rather than their looks. Let’s all try to empower our next generation of strong young ladies and next time you see a sweet child, ask her what she is thinking about. Ask her what she likes to do or where she has been. These are the things that she should be proud to share.
