Moms should create a more realistic body image about their own body shape, enabling daughters to realize the importance of inner beauty and spirit. Young women are empowered when they have a strong female role model who is grounded in her belief system. Your extra love will help your daughters to grow up to be loving women to themselves, and the ones they love.
A mom can instill confidence in her daughter right from the day she is born. It has been proven scientifically that a fetus can feel the anxiety or anger while in-utero in her mother’s womb. Even before the toddler can talk, she is more aware of what is going on around her. If the mom is feeling off-center and downtrodden, the daughter will see this and internalize a message – that is how she should be too.
Moms can be models of unconditional love for their daughters to learn and mirror over time.
Build Confidence In Daughters
Confidence building starts with moms creating a more realistic body image and self-supported thoughts about their own body shape. When the mom “gets it” that the expectations of how girls should look in order to be “attractive” in society are unattainable, she can raise her daughter with better guidance on how to properly care for her mind and body.
Young women are empowered when they can learn from a strong female role model who is grounded in her belief system. We need to teach our daughters that looks are only window dressing. It is underneath our outer appearance that holds our inner spirit, soul and essence. Moms need to be extra loving to their daughters, so that their daughters grow up to be loving women to themselves, and the ones they love.
Today’s changing world brings forth a new generation of people who will not be able to rely only on physical appearance in order to effectively compete in society. Young women today need to prepare for their futures as adults with careers, families and responsibilities while developing their inner confidence.
When young women start believing in themselves, and be aligned with their core values; they will be more capable of surviving and thriving throughout life.
