I frequently write and blog about how vital it is for teens – and girls in particular – to have confidence and healthy self-esteem. They’re surrounded by images of gorgeous celebrities and often wonder if they measure up. What they don’t realize is that most of these photos have been digitally enhanced! There are, however, some wonderful role models out there for girls – young female athletes and performers who have gained success and are brimming with self confidence. I’m constantly congratulating my daughters on their successes and work hard to support them in the activities they enjoy most. And I remind them that everyone is unique and has different strengths. My oldest daughter is a bookworm and is now showing and interest in soccer. My youngest thinks she’s Hannah Montana (maybe because her name is Hannah!) and loves singing and dancing. I see how confident they are when they are doing what they love.
Whatever your daughter is into, you can see the pride and confidence on her face when she’s achieving success. And when companies and brands recognize the importance of teen girls’ self-esteem I want to support them! That’s why I was so excited to learn about the new Confidence Rocks Sweepstakes by Playtex Sport. Playtex® Sport® tampons believes that confidence is the secret ingredient to teens feeling and doing their best.
