OMG! Guess who I ran into? I ran into Fantasia  (and she's looking FAB, by the way) and we sat down and talked about any and everything that you could imagine. As we were chatting, I mentioned the premiere of "Dark Girls" on the OWN Network, and we discussed her experiences growing up and how they are similar to what her daughter is dealing with now.

This led me to an even deeper question. I want to know, what can we, as parents, can do to  help our daughters gain and maintain their self esteem, self-confidence and self-worth in a society that has tried to create a narrowed definition of "beauty" through the creation of an invisible, but subconscious beauty "checklist" (example: lighter eyes, longer hair, slender physique).

This is a serious issue and we NEED to find a solution because if our girls cannot figure out how to love and value themselves, we cannot expect others and/or society to value them either. I think it starts in the home. Check it out.
