Coplen says she’s been guilty of telling her two little girls how pretty they are. She says it’s time to change the conversation.

“I realized that I wasn’t telling them all the other pretty amazing things about them, that they’re pretty kind, or pretty smart, or pretty brave. So the idea was to shift the language,” she said.


Part of the proceeds from Coplen’s book go toward Girls Inc Metro Denver. The nonprofit works to build strong and bold women.
