little girls

I have been meaning to blog about this great article How to Talk to Little Girls by Lisa Bloom for several weeks. She asked you to think about what you say to little girls when you meet them. Is the first thing you say to them how pretty or cute they are. I know I do this all the time. She says why not ask them what their favorite book is or what they like to do the most. "Teaching girls that their appearance is the first thing you notice tells them looks are more important then anything," says Bloom. As she squelches the feeling of fawning all over them, she finds that asking them about their favorite book or what they love to do she is able to connect with them so much more. Loved reading Joanna's experience too with having real conversations with little girls.
