I read an article in the paper this morning that stated it wasn't healthy to tell your daughter she's pretty as it puts too much pressure on them and leads them to think looks are more important. Personally I was a rather hideous child and I never asked my parents for reasurance and therefore have grown up with less weighting on others looks alone. Anyway, my question is: Do you argree with this articles view and if you have/had kids have you noticed them asking if they're pretty and what do you say back?

In the end, I can promise you that your kids will think that you are biased for telling them that they are pretty when they grow up, and let's face it, you are. But that shouldn't stop you from telling them! What the article fails to realize is that it's up to YOU to show them by example that it's what is on the inside that matters, that there is more to life than just looks and being a strong woman comes from within first.1
