I love this new commercial by Verizon. It’s beautifully done and definitely rings true for me at least. What our parents tell us, how they encourage or discourage us has an incredible impact on us.
I’m blessed to have parents who affirm me and encourage me. I slightly disagree with this video because the video implies that if you tell your daughter she’s pretty, then she won’t want to pursue math and science. I say, nonsense! In fact little girls NEED to hear from their father’s that they are pretty. If they don’t they will look for that affirmation from someone else. It is totally possible for parents to tell their daughter that she is pretty and smart!
What do you think?
