I came across this loving words written by a mother to her daughter of ten years old. I think that some of the advice can work at any age, like the following one:

“5. You are so very beautiful. Your face now holds the baby you were and the young woman you are rapidly becoming.  My eyes and cleft chin and your father’s coloring combine into someone unique, someone purely you.  I can see the clouds of society’s beauty myth hovering, manifest in your own growing self-consciousness.  I beg of you not to lose sight with your own beauty, so much of which comes from the fact that your spirit runs so close to the surface.”

    1. I am the one who needs to thank you for your wonderful words, Lindsey! I am so happy you took the time to write here! It is not always easy to be a mother to an adolescent daughter and to find the right way to tell her you love her, and your message to her, at that particular age of 10 years old, is so full of love and wisdom.You are a great mother, no matter your flaws. not that you have any flaws!
