How do you help to pre-teens find their self worth? Do they not realize that sex is not the answer? I have two who I am working with right now. We are doing the Love Myself Campaign.
My goal is to show them that they are beautiful and have way more to offer than sex. How can 11 and 12 year old know about sex already? I was still playing with barbies. I don’t understand our societies rush our children to grow up. I want my children to be little as long as possible. I am all for responsibility but lets not overload them to be little adults.
These two girls cook, clean, watch siblings, do errands and more. On top of going to school and hearing their dad say how much he hates them, they wont amount to anything and they will forever be poor. A bunch of us have reported them and nothing gets done. I really feel this Dad has no idea how long his words will scar. I still carry the scars of my bio fathers words to me. I still feel the sting to this day.
I am going to take them once we get everything caught up bill wise for a special girls day. I have been talking with their mom who is a single mom. She is doing her best as a mom. I have no doubts that her job as a single mom is more hard than ever. I will find out pretty soon as I will be a single mom for 24 weeks. I wish she would take our help that we offer. So these little girls could be just that little girls.
I do know that she loves these girls more than she knows. My heart just breaks at their lack of self esteem. I hope with doing this program. You can google it Love Myself Campaign. We can stop their self destructive behavior. I just don’t want them to hurt anymore. I had to laugh once they left. They put on Christina Aguilera CD on and she sang as loud as she could to Beautiful. These two verses louder than the rest of the song
“Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly it’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain, feel so ashamed
I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today”
As I cooked dinner the tears streamed down my face wishing she would hear the lyrics and love the lyrics. No that no matter what She is beautiful. Here is why I laughed. Wouldn’t you know Glee’s show this week had Mercedes singing this song. The tears started to flow again. I am going to show these girls their beauty and what they are good at.
So sweet girls I know you sneak in on this site. You read those lyrics and you read what was written. Know that you have a specail place in my heart and the love I feel for your family is endless.
