disclosure compensated post UNI_KRG_Dove_Self_Esteem_Asset2-101413_R2

As a mom, I work very hard to ensure that my daughter grows up with high self-esteem.  Too many times girls cannot look past what they see as flaws to see the true beauty that lies within each of us.  Did you know that six in ten girls stop doing what they love because of anxiety about their looks?

That’s why  Kroger has teamed up with the Dove® Self-Esteem Project to help reach more than 15 million girls with self-esteem building programs by 2015.  They have already reached 11 million girls, and with our help, they can meet their goal in just a few years.


It’s easy to get involved and really make a difference in the life of a girl.

  • Purchase Dove products at Kroger.  Proceeds from every purchase of Dove products goes to help girls across the country reach their full potential.
  • Download the Dove Self-Esteem Toolkit.  You’ll get simple, handpicked activity suggestions that are perfectly matched to you and the girl in your life.
  • Tweet and join in other conversation by using the hashtag #GirlsUnstoppable.

This is a world and day in age where girls seem to be driven by what they see in the mirror.  We have the power to help them love what they see.

Using the Dove Self-Esteem Toolkit, it’s easy to create an entire night of amazing fun and activities to reach that special girl {or girls} in your life.  You choose the age of the girl, your role in their life, whether you’ll be hanging our with one girl or a group, and self-esteem topic you want to address.  You’ll instantly be given a list of things to utilize and connect with your girl to spread the message of self-esteem.


Think about pairing the activities you’re given with a “Just Us Girls” night.  Raileigh and I love to have these special times together.  Often times, we do nails, watch a movie, and read together.  Other times, we’ll head out and get frozen yogurt, chatting as we munch on one of our favorite snacks.

Every girl is unique and beautiful.  Together with Dove and Kroger, you and I have the opportunity to truly make a difference.

In celebration of this amazing self-esteem movement, one lucky reader is going to win a box of Dove products!

    I think letting them know that they are great just the way they are, and remind them of that often.

  2. Maria J Holguin says:

    Girls should not be compared to the “perfection” media shows, each one should embrace who they are and live happily.

  3. Becca says:

    It is important to not call out girls on their weight. Also, when moms are always dieting and what not, it teaches their daughters to not like their bodies either.

  4. wendy b says:

    Showing by example….I am especially careful about what I say about myself and other females….particularly about weight, looks, etc.

  5. Holly Storm-Burge says:

    Start by being a positive role model. If you aren’t confident, then your daughter will pick up on that. It starts with mothers and grandmothers.

  6. kathy dalton says:

    Young girls are too obsessed with perfection and we need to tell them that they are beautiful inside and out

  7. Nancy says:

    I think we can praise them for their character, actions, and achievements : kindness, helping others, unselfishness, completing assignments on time, etc.

  8. Becky VanGinkel says:

    By complimenting young girls on things besides their beauty! I make sure to tell my girls positive things about themselves every day! I like to say things like: You’re such a good organizer! You are such a great listener! I like the way you put your toys away. You are such a big helper and a great big/ little sister. I think those kinds of compliments mean more to a person and give self esteem 🙂

  9. Liberty Boblett says:

    As a Mom, I think it is important to not complain about my appearance or others in front of my daughter. I remember hearing my Mom complain about her looks/weight and that made me think about my own issues.

  10. Christina says:

    As an aunt, I always praise my nieces on whatever accomplishments they have recently conquered. I ask questions about their lives with serious interest. I show them love and attention, more or less, I make them feel they are truly important! I want to be a positive role model to them because I feel that is important to self esteem.

  11. Sabrina says:

    By keeping them involved in activities, sports and community volunteering. These things help promote self confidence, in my opinion.

  12. Danielle Jones says:

    Remind them that true beauty is on the inside not the out. One day we’ll all be old and wrinkled but what’s on the inside beauty will always be there.

  13. Sue Hull says:

    I always told my daughter how smart and beautiful inside & out she is. I wanted her to get a good education and to just do her best and show people respect. She’s a very confident and comfortable in her own skin young lady. I’m very proud of her. Plus she’s making me a grandma in May and I’m just oh so happy! My daughter and I are big Dove users. Thank you 🙂

    telling yourself something you like about yourself every time you say something negative about yourself.

  15. Sarah Jackson says:

    We ensure that our daughters know that they are special no matter what. We educate them on things that happen in life and things they may experience but let them know it doesn’t change who they are. We allow them to play sports and they are involved with the Girl Guides of Canada as well. This allows them to shine and lets their personality blossom.

  16. roger simmons says:

    Reminding our daughter that she doesnt need to be a fairy princess everyday and that she can dress casually is one of our biggest things. She always wants to wear dresses even on the cold days and we consistently remind her but she is also a very smart girl and is they type that can chat anytime and still get straight A’s so we also have to remind her to be thoughtful of others and we do tell her that she is smart but we remind her to not be conceited or an egoist.

  17. renee says:

    I think the biggest favor we can do for girls today is remind them that most girls portrayed in the media are NOT REAL, and that they need not use them as a means of setting standards on how they should look.

  18. latoya says:

    I think encouraging both girls and guys to compliment themselves is a great way to build self-esteem, that way they are not always looking outward for validation.

  19. Michele L says:

    I think horse riding lesson were important. My 17 year old daughter is very self confident and self assured and is the only one of her friends who doesn’t thing she “needs” a boyfriend…and she doesn’t take crap from anyone (horse or boy)

  20. Gayle S says:

    Encourage young girls to be proud of the things they do. Volunteering is a great way to help them see that their actions influence what people think of them more than if you are the prettiest girl in school.

  22. Dawn Monroe says:

    I try to tell my granddaughters when ever I see them something they are good at. Its the little things I think. Plus I told my daughters that saying that girls can do anything boys can only they can do it in heels.

  23. beth says:

    Make sure they know that they are beautiful how they are and they don’t need to play into the media’s vision of them.

  24. April G says:

    Focus on their strengths and skills, and get them interested and involved in activities that bolster those and so bolster their confidence and self-esteem!

  25. Susan Christy says:

    Surround them with positive role models, and boost their self esteem with positive reinforcement, encouragement and teach them to love their body as it is. Self image is the biggest self-esteem crusher in my family.

  26. Carol W says:

    keep them active. They should get involved with sports, plays, scouts or anything else that they will enjoy. thanks

  27. Desiree h says:

    Raising your child with great self esteem helps so much! Constantly give your children the confidence they need to have great self esteem, but not be conceited! Parents have a huge effect on their children!

  28. Cynthia R says:

    involve them in many different types of activities, art, drama, sports, academics, etc, getting them confident and good at different skills is a boost

    I Think Volunteering Is A Great Way To Help Others While Improving The Way We Feel. Girl’s Night In Or A Spa Day Would Be A Fun Way To Improve Confidence And Have Fun!
