“She is Beautiful”
“She’s so gorgeous”
“She has the most wonderful smile, it always makes me so happy”
“Her eyes are so sparkly, I love them”
“She is adorable when she makes that expression”
“Her hair really looks pretty like that”
“That colour really suits her, she just looks fantastic in it”
“Her hands are so elegant”
Hey..those compliments or many more,perhaps,the boys could think of praising a girl. And i remember my graduation times and me used to praise like that. I’d be willing to bet on any cost that girl was never told growing up those sayings or praisings. It seems that many don’t see the point in praising up their daughters in this way. Beauty is only skin deep!?! Have you seen anyone saying like, “Look at that girl. Wow, she looks like she knows how to do a hard day’s work and I bet she makes the best pie ever. Yeah, I want that girl!” Nope, all’re praised for their external beauty.
My belief is that if a girl enters her teenage years with the complete confidence that someone finds her beautiful she’s not going to go searching for acceptance with half the boys in her year.
Never let yourself tell your girl “Don’t you have a funny looking nose?”
“Oh dear, I was hoping you wouldn’t inherit your grand father’s knees”
“You really look like a certain Star Trek character when you make that expression”
No matter how much in jest you say it and how much she laughs, there’s a decent chance that for tens of years to come that little girl will be looking in the mirror saying “She was right, I am a funny nosed,bulgy kneed, star trek character”
