6 tips to deal with adolescent complexes
1. Beware of labels and how we say things to our daughter. Do we project ourselves into it? "Child, I was prettier at your age." That way we would cause him great harm. She has to find security at home, because we believe it this way: for us, she must always be the prettiest ... because she is our daughter. We do not need anything else.
2. Offer readings and cultural opportunities to avoid having a frivolous vision of women.
3. Talking about yourself is vital. Biological changes produce transformations in their thinking, in their feelings, in their relationship with others. It will not be easy, due to the age they are going through, but how much we would have gained if they could, in those moments when they need to open up with their confidences, find us willing.
4. To stop thinking so much about herself, its appearance and its image is interesting that our daughter is open to others: from helping in some volunteer association to caring for a sick family member.
5. It is possible to reach agreements with clothes, and it is something in which, at times, we must be compromising. There are clothes that we do not like, but that does not have disadvantages: in those cases, we do not have to engage in discussions and give in to the accidental, but not in the essentials.
6. Do sport, in team games, to learn to win and lose, and not to be seen as the center of everything: volleyball, basketball, soccer.
If there are real defects that make you complex, such as acne, extra kilos, etc. Appropriate solutions can be found, something our daughter will thank us for: endocrine-controlled diets, going to a dermatologist, replacing glasses with contact lenses, etc. We must do everything possible so that our daughter, as a woman, feels attractive. This does not mean a sculptural figure, and so you have to see it, but something deeper.
