Tonight, as my 7yo & I brushed our teeth in front of a mirror, I remembered this study. So I said, "I feel beautiful!" She said, "You are! And everyone says I look just like you!" What will she deduce about her body if I disparage mine?

Why bedtime stories? I can rattle off all the amazing benefits. But beyond all that -- in all the ups and downs of life -- bedtime stories help my kids and me end the day connected.
