7 Tips for Building Self Esteem in Growing Girls -- Encourage the weird!

Building Self Esteem

My daughter is turning 11 this month. She’s in 5th grade and is really starting to come into her own. Thankfully she’s got a great attitude and doesn’t let what others think get in her way. She’s proud to be quirky. She’s always telling me, “Weird is the new compliment, Mom.” I freaking love it.

But to keep this trend growing strong, we work on continuously building self esteem every day. Most girls seem to dwell on changing one thing about themselves. Here are some of our tried and true tips to remind her she’s perfect just the way she is:

  • Choosing outfits that make her feel awesome–no matter how strange or mismatched
  • Always complimenting her brave decisions
  • Reminding her to wash her face every night with a Dove White Beauty Bar–it’s the secret to beautiful, soft skin
  • Spending time just listening to how her day went
  • Limiting time spent staring at a screen–we cannot forget what real communication is
  • Eating healthy–it makes her feel her best physically and mentally
  • Getting to be on time to ensure she has energy everyday to be her best

Dove Change One Thing

We choose Dove products firstly, because we love them. Secondly, because they support such a great cause. The Dove Self-Esteem Project reassures girls that don’t need to change one thing about themselves. Watch this video to see what girls are really thinking about themselves.

I know I always wished I had thicker hair. I make sure to remind myself not to think that way or let my daughter hear me say things like that. After all, I am perfectly fine being me. Thin hair and all.
