Being a Mom to two teenage girls I know how damaging or uplifting self esteem can be. My girls have a very hard time with their self-esteem. I won’t lie I am not the best role model. I have never had really big self-esteem and I am afraid my own insecurities hasn’t helped much.
I am always looking for ways to help me build up their self-esteem. I was very happy to learn about CafeMom’s Mad Life. Joannie and the round table of ladies talk about how they build up their daughters self-esteem and give advice on ways that you can do the same thing.
I love Logan Levkoff’s advice about instead of talking about the vanity of the outside, make it more about the strength. Like if your daughter has beautiful long legs, talk more about how fast she can run on them or dance. I have actually started trying to implement that when I talk to the girls and I notice that lately they have been looking at their bodies a little more differently. Even though I am not sure how I feel about Dakotah calling her hips “The birthers.”
The main people to thank for Mad Life are Andrew, Joanie, and Chuck. You can read more about them HERE.
But it’s not just about self-esteem. Mad Life talks about parenting, beauty, style, and relationships. I want to share 5 of my favorite videos with you. This gives you just a taste of what Mad Life has to offer. The videos are not long, which is perfect for us busy Moms!
