Many girls suffer from low self-esteem and negative self-image. This can cause them to date the wrong guys, be subjected to bullying and accept a life that is less than what they are worthy of.
As dads, this is not what we want for our daughters.
But as today’s guest explains, dads can play a vital role in helping our daughters grow up to be strong, confident and successful women.
The things we say and the example we set for them in their early years helps form a program that they will take with them for the rest of their lives.
Stefanie Fields is a trained hypnotherapist who understands the importance of words and actions. As someone who has suffered from low self-esteem and body image issues, she is on a mission to make sure other girls don’t have to go through the same thing.
Stefanie now writes children’s books that help embed positive affirmations in young girls minds so they can grow up to be strong and confident women.
