Tell Your Children They’re #Beautiful. #parenting #family

There are many serious matters for parents to be responsible for and worried about.  Will my child be safe Will he be happy?  Will she be OK?  But then there are topics of discussion that act as fuel to ignite fear.

Tell Your Children They’re Beautiful blog post made my heart sing today. It helps alleviate misguided worry.  It really is OK to tell your children they’re beautiful.  Because they are.

Full disclosure.  Tell Your Children They’re Beautiful was written by my beautiful daughter, Devin.  The sweet picture included is of my beautiful grandson, Henry.

Do you tell loved ones that they are beautiful?  Do others tell you you’re beautiful?  (You are beautiful!)  What does “beautiful” mean to you?

Have a, you guessed it, beautiful weekend ❤ ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc

    • Oh my goodness, Mark. Thank you, thank you! How did you know it was my birthday? For the life of me I can’t remember mentioning it. You are good!!!

      And I’m glad to report that I’m being spoiled properly! I’m surrounded by my handsome men to included college-aged son coming home early 🙂 Thanks for being a part of the celebration. Terrific weekend to you and yours ❤


      • Your daughter let the cat out of the bag on her blog, Angie McFly! So when I clicked over as you suggested, I found out and invited myself to come back over for the celebration. Enjoy all your handsome men, my friend. 🙂

      • So glad you checked out Devin’s blog! I just realized that that I originally linked to her blog homepage, instead of the specific link to “Tell Your Children They’re Beautiful.” So now I’ve fixed the links and read her most recent post…phew! What a wonderful day it is! Thanks for being a part of it, Mark 😀


  1. My sister texted me awhile back and told me I was beautiful. Completely caught me off guard. Children are beautiful and should be reminded of this constantly. Thank you Angie 🙂
    P.S. You’re beautiful ♥

  2. I LOVE her post and couldn’t agree more. I read all the time all of the things we shouldn’t say. If you tell them they are smart, they will become a perfectionist. Beautiful and they will be too concerned with looks. Tell them their picture is pretty and they will think they have to have your approval to be happy. It’s enough to drive a parent insane 🙂
    I am with you and Devin- if I am thinking something wonderful about my kids, I will tell them. I have to believe that withholding heartfelt compliments is much more damaging than giving them…but who knows. I’m sure I’ll find all kinds of ways to damage my kids 🙂


  3. Well written and too true! Children need to hear all about how much you love them and think highly of them – they also need to be helped through their weaknesses so they don’t become arrogant.

    Beauty is also a state of mind. 😀

    And you are beautiful to me, Angie. 🙂
