One of the things I am very conscious about as a parent of a girl is teaching our daughter what true beauty really is. My husband and I take every opportunity that presents itself to tell all our children that inner beauty is what's most important and that someone can be beautiful on the outside, but be very ugly on the inside. I think it is natural to be a little vain and I do not necessarily think that vanity has to go hand-in-hand with being shallow.
Even though my children probably do not know who Audrey Hepburn was, I'm sure they would think she was exquisite if they saw a picture of her. Then I would explain to them that she was a great humanitarian who was also very beautiful on the inside.
I just love this quote by Audrey Hepburn. I think it is a formula for true beauty that should be shared with every young girl.
