At last nights VMA awards, the singer Pink sent her daughter Willow a message.
The Grammy-winning singer said her daughter told her recently she felt like she was ugly. Pink responded that many artists, from Jackson to Prince to David Bowie and even herself, were regularly made fun of, but pressed ahead with their art to inspire others.
“We don’t change,” Pink said. “We take the gravel in the shell and make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty.”
And in closing, she reminded her daughter: “You my darling are beautiful.”
Now, that’s a mom!
My inclination with blogging is to keep going with the idea of parenting children with confidence and strong self-esteem, no matter what skin they’re in. I want to look at ways to grow happy and healthy girls in all shapes and sizes.
Is that interesting to you?
