All parents are meant to think their children are beautiful, regardless of what they actually look like. But some parents secretly fear their baby isn’t quite as aesthetically pleasing as they ought to be, according to a new survey. As many as one in 12 mothers and fathers fear their child is ‘ugly’ – despite never voicing these fears to another person – and more than three times that admit finding at least one of their friends’ children unattractive…
I always thought my daughter was beautiful, even as a newborn when she was super tiny and pretty wrinkly right after she was born! I hate to admit that I have secretly thought that other newborns were not cute at all, even though I never said that out loud. And I still feel bad for even thinking that, and admitting it even now!
I think these stats are kind of sad too: 23 percent of parents admit to buying beauty products in order to improve their child’s looks, including nail polish, lipstick and mascara for children as young as four!
