Love Your Flawz

My 14 year-old (Emily, who is a DeviantArt devotee) found a site today called LoveYourFlawz. We discussed it and think it's better for teens (and adults!) than younger children, although the message it promotes is certainly valid for every age.

Some of the posts on the Community Blog at LoveYourFlawz are heartbreaking, and can serve to remind us all of how cruelly our kids suffer from what they perceive as their flaws -- whether it be overweight, having a big nose or simply being different. With bullying an issue in the real world and online, this site is a welcome oasis where hopefully children can learn about kindness (to themselves and others), self-esteem and acceptance.

Hug your kids, folks!
