"The princess label that we’ve plastered all over our daughters feels like a self-esteem prank. 'You are a princess!' and an over-inflated sense of self holds little weight when other girls get mean and life gets hard.
The kind of princess we’ve encouraged our daughters to become is the wrong sort of princess – one who acts more like a toddler-in-a-tiara than a confident queen-in-waiting.
How is it that a whole generation of crown-wearing toddlers grew up to struggle – at higher rates than ever before – with body image issues, anxiety, and depression?"
