It's no secret, I have 4 girls in this house, plus myself, my son is sorely outnumbered!
Each of my girls is so unique, I have an athlete, an artist, a free spirit and one with a very strong willed spirit. I love them each so much and try to build them up in their interests and encourage even trying new things as well.
With our family dynamics changing on almost a monthly basis, I have taken the time to teach my girls that they need to love themselves, despite what others may say. They need to be happy on their own, or they will never be happy with someone else. That they need to be strong and to stand up for themselves. And to be honest, I believe that each of them has their own way of doing this, they still have a ways to go, same with myself.
Our house is a very open house. When someone feels that they have been teased, bullied, made fun of, or just left out, we talk about it. We work through breaking the stereotypes that may follow them. We are a family who breaks cycles and creates better futures for ourselves.
This is what I wish everyone could see. I want my kids to embrace the phrase #LIKEAGIRL I want them to feel that it is empowering and not something to be ashamed of. Together, we can all help that change to happen. We can all speak into the lives of every girl and boy that we come into contact with and be that voice that they will hear when they use the phrase in a negative way.
WE NEED TO BE THE CHANGE!!
I love that Always has taken the lead in this change, even securing a commercial spot during the Superbowl tonight! I am not into sports and my kids are out watching the game, so I am taking advantage of the quietness right now:)
This is the commercial that has been or will be shown during the big game. It is a great conversation starter. Please take the lead in your own circle of influence and lets watch that ripple go through our family, our community, our city and the world!!
To help with the conversation, I have a giveaway starting right away, it includes a variety of Always products along with a Play #LIKEAGIRL t-shirt. The giveaway will end on Feb. 9, 2015 at midnight.
