I wrote this back in June for my Tips for Tweens Blog when they partnered with Dove.  Being that it's DOVE SELF ESTEEM WEEKEND I thought it would be appropriate for a Re-Post

During the next few weeks the Wondermoms site is focusing on Dove. I admire their Real Beauty campaign, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that it hit home.

I was getting ready to go out with my son. He came & stood beside me as I was doing my hair in the mirror & said "Mom why do you always have to do make up & hairstyles?" I said "It's just what I do to get ready for my day. Why don't you like it?" He replied with "No, then you don't look like you".

After my heart sank a little & followed by the Biggest I LOVE YOU hug ever, I thought of this video.

What do you think of it? Have you shown your kids? I did & I think you should too, just to see their reaction & talk about how it makes them feel.

  1. I think everyone - every girl, boy, man, woman - needs to see this video, and before and after photoshopped pictures of models and celebrities. Even THEY don't look like they look. SO important.
