Cam girls is for adults only system
As I always bite my tongue when I meet little girls, restraining myself from my first impulse, which is to tell them how darn cute/ pretty/ beautiful/ well-dressed/ well-manicured/ well-coiffed they are. It’s our culture’s standard talking-to-little-girls icebreaker, isn’t it? I told her that I’d just written a book, and that I hoped she’d write one too one day. We were both sad when Maya had to go to bed, but I told her next time to choose another book and we’d read it and talk about it. That got her too amped up to sleep, and she came down from her bedroom a few times, all jazzed up. Will my few minutes with Maya change our multibillion dollar beauty industry, reality shows that demean women, our celebrity-manic culture? But I did change Maya’s perspective for at least that evening. She may be surprised and unsure at first, because few ask her about her mind, but be patient and stick with it.

Reply Thank you for this practical extension ‘how-to’ which will make it easier for adults to talk with children.
I told her my favorite color in the world is green, because I love nature, and she was down with that. Tell her about your ideas and accomplishments and your favorite books.

But after Maya closed the final page, I steered the conversation to the deeper issues in the book: mean girls and peer pressure and not going along with the group.

Reply If a 15 year old dresses well; fine, acknowledge it, good for her, she probably had some say in the matter.
But when you compliment a 5 year old’s outfit, you are simply complimenting the parents fashion choices.
