Show her some pics or let her meet a few women who wear them and are successful/beautiful. My five year old boy only wears his because they are camo his favorite color. good luck!

Well by your typing you may need a pair yourself. Lol just joking. It sounds like she's feeling like the black sheep of the family. Maybe if you, or her little brother got a pair of non prescription glasses to wear a bit, she might feel more comfortable. If this is fairly new, give it time. Best of luck!

That just breaks my heart to hear that. Please tell your daughter this is only one more thing that makes her special. Make some cookies, read a book, or any activity that requires her glasses so she can start seeing the positive things. Have her try reading without, and with the glasses. Her glasses are her tool to use, so try to make it seem as if they're her super power. Lol Sorry my heart broke so I had to give more suggestions. I hope she finds the positive in this. It is only glasses, not an 11th finger.

Just kidding. Take a fork and jab her little brothers eyes out and tell her if she doesn't start wearing her glasses you will do the same to her. She will wear her glasses.

I think that little boys with forks in their eyes are adorable. I don't mean that in a sexual way either.

How old is she? I have a 14 year old daughter and a 12 and they both wear them. They have a few pairs so they can color coordinate with their outfits. Also if she is above the age of 9 she can try contacts. Good luck.
