Middle school can be some of the toughest years for our kids. Especially for girls.
This is the time of their lives when they start to turn into young women. As a result, middle school is often when body image issues are most likely to develop for girls.
Warren Middle School in Forney, Texas, is working hard to combat this issue through a bathroom inspiration project.
The school has gone viral after Facebook photos were shared showing teachers crafting inspirational and uplifting messages in the girls' bathroom.
Stall doors were painted with messages such as "Bloom where you're planted," and "Real girls aren't perfect, perfect girls aren't real."
Banners above the bathroom mirrors contained phrases such as "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, there's a leader in us all."
Warren Middle School is not the only school creating projects such as these. A North Carolina middle school hired a local artist to paint inspiring messages in its girls' restrooms last year.
Schools and teachers everywhere are encouraging other to implements projects like this one. The hope is that these messages will help our children get through the tougher years of their lives, in a positive way.
