What article or book changed your outlook on an issue or life?

I really love the message that you should talk to young girls about their thoughts and accomplishments, rather than just tell them how pretty they are. It is really something to think about, because I am guilty of telling kids that I like their outfit, or their hair is pretty, etc. I think it's become automatic to so many people, just like the automatic response when you meet someones pet is to exclaim how cute they are. And it's something we really need to get over, even if commenting on a kid's appearance is the easy way to make conversation. We need to start treating girls as more than objects, even from a young age. We will be a better society, and have more well rounded kids because of it.
