Whether you thought Jlo and Shakira’s halftime Super Bowl performance was empowering or inappropriate, we can all agree we want to raise daughters (and sons) with healthy self-esteem and a positive body image.
This morning on Global TV, I shared just how we can do that.
And as for the halftime performance, I am leaving it up to a few smart ones to express how I felt. Personally, I was mesmerized.
Here are the words of wisdom, in my humble opinion…
