Beat Breakfast Panel:How can I let my 5 year old daughter know how beautiful she is?

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
