"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?"
