Even though I don’t have girls yet, this forum was so meaningful especially in this day and age. It was interesting to listen to the family development experts @teachergabby and @teachertinaz talk about beauty anxiety (yes there is such a term) and how it starts early for girls. We all have these insecurities in our life whether about our looks, our work, our status. The team up of @dove and @mommymundo have led to this #confidentgirl forum which aims to help moms start (or continue) their journey on developing their daughters’ self-esteem. Because it really starts at home.
What stuck to me was what @teachertinaz said: “your daughters (or sons actually) should be getting the likes from you and not from social media” So appropriate especially now that we or teenage girls can be so insecure about how many ”likes” one gets on their posts on Instagram.
So let us support #realbeauty by downloading the Dove Self-Esteem Project Modules in the Dove website and you can actually do it with your girls to inspire them to believe in their own beauty. ✨
