One of the most challenging things about raising a daughter today is ensuring that she has confidence and a positive self-image. I really think I lucked out in this category. Although our daughter is a perfectionist and is hard on herself when she disappoints herself by not mastering something right away, she is well-rounded and is confident in most areas of her life. Unfortunately, the reality is that not all parents are as lucky as my husband and I are, but instead are faced with the challenge of raising their daughter's self-esteem.
Reflect Who I Am is a brand of graphic tees for girls and adults that bear a positive message that can only be read while looking in a mirror. That way, whenever the person looks in the mirror, she will be reminded of something wonderful. The design my 6 year old daughter chose was the mirror image of the message "I am Loved." She received it presented so nicely tied with a satin ribbon along with the Reflect Who I Am logo drawstring bag.
Our daughter currently wears a girls size 6, so we chose the Small (6-8). The style of t-shirt is a baby doll style and is meant to be fitted. It was only slightly too large on our daughter, even after we machine washed and dried the shirt. It will easily last us another year or two before she outgrows it.
Having a shirt with a mirror image on it was an extremely cool concept to our daughter. She could not wait to wear it to school so she could challenge everyone to read it.
The Reflect Who I Am logo is also screen printed onto the back of the shirt below the neckline.
Since you cannot be there to offer encouraging words each time your daughter looks in the mirror, it is great to know that she will receive that message anyways. I especially like the "I am loved" design my daughter chose, as well as the one that reads, "I am beautiful."
What a wonderful gift a Reflect Who I Am t-shirt would make to a girl, tween, teen, or woman who needs that extra boost of self-esteem. Tucked inside our package was a little note from the Reflect Who I Am Team addressing the recipient of the shirt. The note reiterates the message on the shirt and reaffirms how true that message is. If you give a shirt as a gift, be sure to include the note with it when presenting the gift.
