As a mom of two preteen girls, I’m very proactive about monitoring their digital space and accounts. The world has certainly changed dramatically from when I was their age, and sometimes I wonder if it’s all for the better. So we’ve set clear expectations about what is and is not appropriate online, and this is an ongoing conversation that we have frequently.
Did you know that 52% of girls think that negativity they see online damages their confidence? (2016 Dove Study, learn more on Dove.com/selfesteem) Truthfully, my guess is tat that percentage is actually higher than reported. I mean, I know there’s been plenty of times that I’ve scrolled through my Facebook feed and left my computer desk feeling a little dejected my day doesn’t feel as shiny and happy as my “friends” appear to be.
The difference is I understand that perception and reality are not often parallel, something that is a difficult concept for preteens and teens to grasp. So I’m thrilled to join Dove in their #SpeakBeautiful campaign!
Dove is encouraging girls (and women!) to change the conversation and make social media a more positive place for beauty and body confidence. I’m all for their goal to support building self-esteem in 20 million girls by 2020!
