Being a mom to girls is a beautiful thing.
It’s what I’ve always wanted.
It’s what I felt I always needed.
But, it’s also what’s always scared me.
It scared me because the stakes of raising girls, raising girls who loved their thighs, their butts, girls who knew they were beautiful, and smart, and everything else seemed so high.
They were high because along with being a “good” example of the kind of woman I wanted my girls to be, I felt that I needed to parent to create girls who were able to overcome to demons that plagued me as a girl.
Today, I’m talking about all that on Babble.
I’m talking about what I plan to teach my girls about beauty.
I would love it if you could check out my essay and provide feedback.
