As the mom of two girls, one of whom is nearly a tweener, I am concerned about the messages we give our daughters related to body image, beauty, intelligence and kindness.
Every girls should feel beautiful inside and out. And every girl should feel powerful. Sadly, too many girls don’t feel this way. And too often it feels like an uphill battle fighting the images and messages that permeate girls’ lives.
Recently, Colbie Caillat (pop singer), decided to lend her voice and fame to this cause in her song Try. It’s worth a look.
