I feel that the best way to help my little girl be confident and happy with her self image is to lead by example. I make sure to never complain about my own appearance, or anything that I cannot change. I hear so many mothers complaining about their weight, hair, etc - and know that their daughters must be thinking that there is something wrong with them too. I love what Dove is doing for female self-esteem!!

As a youth pastors wife for 12 years, I spent a lot of time with young girls teaching them that they are special in God's eye. Much time was spent teaching them about how they treat one another. One activity that we did was having each girl say something special about another girl in our group. It was a great self-esteem builder for one another.

I always lead by example. My daughters know that no matter what, they are important individuals and life is for enjoying and not worrying about what others are saying and doing. My daughters never look at people from the outside, they see them from the inside.

Well I happen to have a 13 year old daughter who is overweight due to a metabolic syndrome so each and every day we work on making her feel comfortable in her own skin by telling her she looks nice and helping her dress so that she feels like a normal tween and not overweight. I provide her with all the healthy eating habits she needs to help out like lots of fresh fruits and veggies and we all eat healthy beside her also including a treat now and then so she doesnt feel left out with desserts she does very well and doesnt feel any different than any other typical 13 year old girl even though she is bigger than average girl.Thank you for the chance at this fabulous prize pack . good luck to all.

My baby girl isn't hitting the tough self esteem age. But at 9 months old, I help her self esteem by praising her when she hits a new milestone.

I love to boost my daughter's self esteem by letting her know how proud I am of her when she does something good, like schoolwork or stuff around the house. I also love to comment her on her appearance when she takes the time to get herself ready and together, Even little words like I Love You, do wonders for her. Thanks so much for such a wonderful giveaway!

Mama B said...

I work very hard to make sure my daughter's self esteem is better than mine. I tell her everyday that she is pretty and how much I like her outfit choice, even if it is hideous!

I lost weight! But mostly, I made peace with my 23 yr old, post-2-baby body.

My daughters range in age (26, 21 and 16 years old). With a house full of girls, I remember quite clearly the problems I had as both a teenager and young woman with my self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. All of my girls are out of the ordinary, very created and gifted, and don't quite 'fit in' with the mainstream. I have always worked to put them in environments where they are around other girls like them who are accepted and loved by those around them (community theater, lots of volunteer work, mentoring programs) and have always told them and showed them that it's OK to be just who they are, because who they are is awesome. (I also took each one of them aside at one point or another and told them, "Don't let your sisters know that I EVER said this to you .. but YOU'RE my favorite daughter" :) Now that they're older, they've figured out that I told ALL of them that, and they think it's great, because it made them feel extra-special without actually taking anything away from their sisters. :)
