I need some help. Yesterday my 5 year old daughter who is half black and half white said to me “mama if I had one wish, I’d wish my hair was blonde and my skin was whiter”. She made the statement like it was no big deal. This broke my heart and I wanna know what I can do to show her how beautiful she is.
This is the first time she has ever said anything like this. She sees her dad who is black a lot and he he even comes over for dinners with me and my husband. She also has 2 mixed siblings and 2 white brothers ages 16 and 13.
I would really like some ideas of what I can do to make sure she knows she is perfect the way she is. She is a very outgoing girl and she has never had any issues at school. Again any help would be appreciated. – Big Problem
