Parents: You may be harming your daughter by telling her she is beautiful

It is common that the first thing a girl hears as a compliment is that she is beautiful. This comment, however, poses some harm to your daughter when she hears it often.

Every girl is bothered more about their appearance because most of the time it is what people seem to first notice about them. This affects the self-esteem of a girl more because she becomes concerned about how she wants to be acceptable when people see her.

This is the major reason why some girls want to be fat, slim, and light-skinned and so many other things they do just to become acceptable in the society. It doesn’t stop at childhood but affect them until when they become adult

This is why we see in our society today many ladies that go through different kinds of surgeries just to suit what they think is the generally acceptable look for a woman.

Every parent especially mothers need to teach their daughters that people’s opinion about their looks is not all that matters about their person. You need to tell your daughter to be satisfied with the way she looks and that she doesn’t need to be concerned about what the society accepts or not.

Your daughter needs to know that beauty is not the major priority for her life but her life is about other major aspects like her academics, her future plans, dreams, and goals to achieve and succeed.

We need to tell young girls that even though beauty is part of the life of a girl it is not the most important aspect and that their values do not depend on how beautiful they look.

Beauty needs to be redefined not as appearance alone but everything that concerns a person.

Let’s watch how we compliment girls so they can set the right priority for life and not focus on looking beautiful for other people’s acceptance alone.
