[ - ] Hotels sort of gross me out. The fact that so many strangers have slept and fornicated on sheets mere hours before I do, even if cleaned, is gross. Same with the blankets and comforters that they don't want. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

6'1" mom here: I agree with your general idea--but only to a point. Petite girls are constantly told they are "soooo cute and just itsy bitsy," and "like a ballerina/gymnast/petite princess," and a million other cutesy affirming things. When people comment about tall girls, they just say "oh, you are soooo tall....." And then just trail off. As a mom of a tall girl, you have to give archetypal examples to aspire to (model! Basketball star!) to ensure that they don't just get the "what a freak show" comments without a positive spin. [ Reply | More ]

My best advice is make her feel proud to be tall. Unlike weight or complexion, there is nothing anyone can do about it--except embrace it! My dad always told me there was nothing worse than seeing a tall girl hunched over and awkward. I took it to heart. Played sports and rowed crew in college, where my height was a huge asset. I really only dated guys my height or taller (probably shallow, but oh well, I think I have a truly amazing husband, so it worked out!). Asa lawyer, I feel like I have a lot of "brand recognition" in being tall--and I think I probably looked like I was competent from earlier in my career because I have physical presence. Just tell her to own it and treat the world as her catwalk. And make sure you are very proactive in finding her clothes that are long enough, so she won't feel self-conscious. We would always spend extra time looking for formal dresses and other clothes that would fit my waist/length well, instead of hitting at the ankle and coming in for the waist around my rib cage. Clothes help shape self confidence in adolescent girls, so if you can, make sure she understands how to dress her body. [ Reply | More ]
