Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

I am strong, I am brave.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am healthy, I am happy.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am courageous, I am fearless.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am smart, I am clever.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am curious, I am creative.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am honest, I am true.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am assertive, I am confident.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am empathetic, I am humble.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.

I am kind, I am loving.

Don’t tell me I’m pretty.


Just because I’m a girl,

and might wear a dress,

Doesn’t mean I don’t measure.

Doesn’t mean I am less.

Please watch what you say,

When you talk about me.

I am more than a face,

More than what you can see.

So say something else-

I’m unstoppable. I’m enough.

But don’t tell me I’m pretty,

Instead, say pretty tough.
