I hear myself saying “Oh, that looks very pretty” or “I love what you’re wearing” or “You’re very pretty” when I meet or see a little girl I know. It’s a knee-jerk response conditioned from years of growing up around five women and one man (my dad) who worked in the garment business and knows how to speak to women. One of the first things almost everyone does when they meet a woman is compliment her appearance.
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty.
You look great. Fabulous. Did you lose weight? I love your shoes. Where did you get that dress? I really like your mascara.
She’s such a pretty girl. What a beautiful girl you are!
Tell Her She’s Strong,
