Amen. I agree that it’s very important to allow little girls to know they’re beautiful, smart, talented, their prescence in a room is inviting and makes those around her smile. I too, was not encouraged as a little girl by my Mother or told I was beautiful or important or smart. I too, was dismissed and dressed in clothes that were the first mismatched outfit and quickest pair of clothes to hurry up and get me ready.
We are knitted in our Mothers Woumb by God Almighty and he calls us the “Apple of HIS eyes!” How much more beautiful do you get than that. Beauty, is not only outside but inside too! I feel that we can balance the baby doll dress up love with reading a good childrens book, or even the children’s Bible to our little girls! Anything else is just judgmental to say that we the people are wrong for having spiritual gifts to show “LOVE” by giving compliments to our baby girls and our friends and families baby girls. We are showing actions & words of LOVE! And “Love” covers a multitude of sins. Food for thought…
