Cinderella's Secret: Know How to Unlock your Child's Inner Magic!!!
I remember when I was 12 years old, I used to be very shy and unsure of myself. I went through a lot of changes about my body and I didn't know what to think of it or how to address the changes. I was also scared and insecure because I didn't feel like a child anymore. I felt my body becoming more and more adult as time goes by.
Together with these physical changes came questions about my own beauty and self-worth. Will I ever be beautiful enough? Worthy enough? Pretty enough? I remember I used fashion magazines as a crutch - trying to find answers in between those pages and trying to look for my beauty and self-worth in the pictures of clear-skinned and flawless models.
Now that I'm an adult, I realised that I should've looked for my worth somewhere else, because I surely didn't find it in the pages of teen magazines. I actually feel more misled by them through the years. Now, I often post videos that advocate true beauty and thoroughly support other bloggers who post about teaching their daughters what true beauty and true self-worth is and where it is found - inside themselves.

The book Cinderella's Secret is a godsend to me, knowing that somehow, a book exists that parents can read to their pre-teen children to help them address the questions they have about themselves and the changes in their lives. The author, George Helou, aims to remove our children's misguided ideas about who they are and replace these with ideas that restore their worth and belief in their own capabilities.

I read the book and I love how it slowly initiates empowering and healing conversations between children and their parents. It retells a classic book, like Cinderella, and allows a child to process her journey and find magic within herself. After reading it, the book will have helped a parent process themes about self-awareness, self-esteem, self-worth, and believing in one's capabilities to his/her children.
As George says, may we be able to raise better generations who are better equipped to handle setbacks, are able to thrive well, and are able to create a better world.
