Do you tell children they are beautiful?
Your own, your neices and nephews, the children of friends?
I was surprised about 10 years ago when I learned that some parents don’t tell their children they are beautiful. Fears it will cause them to have a big head or it just isn’t done in their family.
My maternal aunt and grandmother especially told me I was gorgeous all of the time, more than my parents. My aunt would say I was perfect (which I took as perfect in every way inside and out, and I knew I was not perfect by a longshot, but it conveyed her love for me, that I was perfect to her) and my aunt would call me her special nickname no one else used.
What are your thoughts on the topic? I guess it can be argued there should not be focus on outer beauty?
