I’ve partnered with Mirum Shopper to bring this content your way. All opinions are my own..
Technology has done so many amazing things to help improve the way we live our lives today. Yet what has it done to our young girls self esteem? Has social media changed the way young girls view themselves because of what they see so many of their peers doing?
Are others so quick to type before they think when it comes to leaving comments on social media?
What if I told you if you bought Dove products you would be helping to shape positivity around our young girls- would you do it?
Putting Into Practice
I have two young girls. I made it a rule to never say outloud in front of them- ” I look so fat.” Ughh look at all this fat.” I realized I grew up hearing it like it was just something you were supposed to complain about.
Yet as I grew older I realized that wasn’t even fat. That was just some silly negative thought process in my head- that lead to self-doubt about my own body image.
I want to teach my daughters to be confident in who they are. I want to encourage them everyday on how great they are- just as they are.
It makes you think about how we share things on social media. The pictures we post of our kids even, and how many people compliment the photo based on beauty.
It starts at such a young age how girls are so often complimented or conversations started by how pretty they look. Today we can help share positive encouraging words to build up every little girls self-esteem.
You Can Help Make the Change
Dove’s own research* has found that 52% of girls feel that the negative posts, comments, snaps, videos or photos they see on social media damages their confidence.
Dove has started a #speakbeautiful movement. Just think about the words for a moment. Speak. Beautiful. What a concept right. So simple but yet we struggle.
