There are few things more powerful than a parent teaching their child to feel good about themselves. And since young women often struggle with their insecurities around men, it seems particularly powerful for a dad to instill worthiness in his daughter. I often remind Mike that how he treats me and how he treats our girls will eventually be reflected in the relationships they choose for themselves. He’s a wonderful father, but I think fully processing this reality helps him to be even better.
In any case, as a mom with two daughters, this video created by Iris, which shows different dads teaching their daughters affirmations to make sure they feel loved, strong and worthy really got me in the feels this morning.
The best thing is that any dad can easily do this in the mirror with their daughter at home.
