Does appearance matter? And why do we judge others based on appearance? We’ve teamed up with Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe to create a series of six short animated films for children. We want to help young people everywhere build confidence and self-esteem so they can embrace their authentic selves, make lasting friendships and celebrate uniqueness. So, this episode helps young people understand the importance of appreciating who they are beyond their appearance.
Dove and Steven Universe: Body talk
We’ve teamed up with Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe – an award-winning show that follows the Crystal Gems and their half-human, half-Gem “little brother”, Steven. Each Crystal Gem is unique – and it’s their individuality that gives them their power, showing young people that being unapologetically themselves is beautiful. Every Dove Self-Esteem Project x Steven Universe episode covers important topics that will help build self esteem and show children why appearance is not so important. So, if a young person you know is struggling with their body, start a conversation with them, explain the value of their inner qualities and let them know that their uniqueness is what’s truly special.
Putting so much emphasis on how you look just makes it seem like I don’t value your skills.
Working with experts from the fields of psychology, health and media, we’ve developed a range of resources to help guide parents, teachers and mentors in building self-esteem. So if your children are struggling with questions like ‘why is personality important?’ and ‘how to feel good in your body’, our resources will be there to help you support them, every step of the way.
