Working together to make a difference
What moms are saying... "I worry that I’m not doing enough to build their self-esteem and confidence. I found something that is so simple, yet I can see how it has the power to be extremely effective in giving girls a daily reminder of how amazing they are. The Girl Power Campaign Rocks"
"Raising girls with a healthy self-image and a mindset for success is something that can be a challenge, especially with the mixed messages in the media. I know how important it is to help girls to see themselves in a positive light. That is why I love the Girl Power Campaign!" See more below.
Studies show that everyday girls are bombarded with negative messages that greatly impact their self image and now it's time to fight back. Girl Power Campaign has created a fun and powerful way to help girls develop a healthy self-image and a successful growth mindset. Based on Dr Carol Dweck's research we have created five simple steps along with our "apparel with a purpose" that will positively change how girls see themselves, others, and their future.

“The bracelets remind me that it is okay to be myself, follow my dreams and make a difference in others’ lives.”
Studies indicate that girls’ top desire is for their parents to spend time with them using open communication in a safe environment. They want to feel special and important. Girl Power Campaign has put together 5 steps to help you encourage and relate with your girls. Our sponsor Zootuz has created fun and fashionable Stretch-N-Reveal bracelets as daily reminders to help implement the steps. Studies show daily positive reinforcement builds young girls self-confidence. We suggest focusing on one step each week:
Let your girls know that it is okay to be themselves. Remind them that they are unique and wonderfully made. They are complete in themselves. Help them understand social and media pressure that try to influence who they think they should be. Teach them that when they wear a mask only the mask receives love and that by being themselves they empower others to do the same. Write her a note… or send her a card. Share some of the peer-pressures you faced at her age and how you handled it, right or wrong.
Give your girl the “Empowered to Be Yourself” bracelet
Teach them to give a smile, it costs nothing but reaps huge benefits. Show them how to be grateful to and for others. Remind them that by giving everything they do their best effort that it is a reflection of who they are. Prompt them to genuinely care about others, putting their selves in others’ shoes. Show them how to assume positive intent. Encourage your girls to get involved in the something they enjoy…sports, music, dance, etc. Just as light chases away darkness in a room, their bright attitude will have the same affect. Take her to a special event or local high school play.
Give your girl the “Empowered to Always Shine Bright” bracelet
Encourage your girls to pursue their dreams. Have them envision where or who they want to be, teaching them goal setting is a valuable asset.
Let them know you believe in them and support their dreams. Encourage them to try something new – give it one year – one season. Help them set obtainable goals, remind them that accomplishment feeds their self-confidence. Their dreams are the seeds to future successes and must be fed and watered daily. Share some of the dreams you had when you were her age.
Give your girl the “Empowered to Follow Your Dreams” bracelet
Encourage your girls to mentor other girls; they can make a difference in others’ lives. Reassure them that all girls their age share similar feelings and pressures so they can learn to reassure others. Let them know they are not alone and that you are there for them. Although many girls want and need open conversation,they might not make it entirely clear to you. Set aside time to have these conversations… remember to just listen and NOT judge. Have her invite someone for a hot fudge sundae…your treat!
Give her “Empowered to Make a Difference” bracelet
By teaching and encouraging your girls these concepts it can be instrumental in getting them involved enabling them to make a change in the world. You can encourage them to volunteer at school, in the community, at church, etc. Helping others provides them a sense of purpose and value taking the focus off of them. Volunteering and helping others can do wonders for their self-esteem. Remind them to include others; they may even reach out by having others join them in volunteering. Find a place to volunteer this week…local food bank, church, community center, etc…do it together and talk about how she felt afterwards. Encourage her to find another volunteer experience and invite a friend.
