Did you know these facts?
- Over 80% of ten year old girls are afraid of being fat.
- By middle school, 40-70 percent of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body, and body satisfaction hits rock bottom between the ages of 12 and 15.
- Girl’s self-esteem plummets at age 12 and does not improve until 20, unhappiness attributed to changes in body shape, as “females first experience a decline in self esteem between the ages of 12 and 13, a time when most females have entered puberty.”1
There are many consequences that occur in young girls, because of the esteem issues that they are subject to in middle school. Consequences such as1:
- Eating disorders
- Early Onset of Sexual Activity
I remember when my daughter, Darrian, was in middle school. This vivacious elementary aged little girl had suddenly become a cranky middle school aged girl that was seldom happy. At the time, I did not know all that was going on in her little brain and emotions. Now that she is 23 years old, she talks to me about all that she was feeling.
I’m so glad to have fostered this new relationship with my daughter, and because of the desire the Lord has put on my heart to help middle school-aged girls, I am so excited to announce the official opening of the application process for the first annual:
#LOVEFIRST GIRLS EMPOWERMENT CAMP
The camp will take place July 24 – 28 from 8:30-5:30 @ 7323 Steel Mill Rd, Springfield VA. We want to help solve the great self-esteem puzzle by assisting parents in raising empowered young girls that know who they are in Christ, and to lead them in honing in on their unique gifts and talents that make them who they are, and shed light on their individual beauty. If you are interested in participating in this amazing camp, email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will get the application out to you ASAP!
