my teen daughter's words....

mean so much!   funny but when she compliments the way i look it means SO much more than when my husband does.  guess it is because she has a more critical eye.  but i just LOVE hearing her say 'wow mom, you look hot' or 'wow mom, great outfit'

am I the only one who feels this way when they get a compliment from their teen girl?

    I can't speak about teen girls.....   But, I feel the same way when my sons compliment my appearance.    I also love it when they get bent out of shape because they think they saw someone give me a second look...... boys are so funny!   They get very dare some random guy check out their Mother!

     yup I agree with you.

    My husband will tell me I look nice when I am just kinda put together ,he also will compliment when I have really put out effort but as an engineer I think he views things ummmm like an engineer but my daughter will tell me why I am looking good,what works and sadly sometimes why it isn't working.Never harshly but truthfully with a good eye.

    Last fall I went to get new make up.The woman tried several different types and colors of eye,face ,blush on me and we settled on one combo.I had some very minor misgivings but decided it was the light.She makes up my whole face ,my daughter comes home for the weekend ,gets out of her car and tells me she is worried I look so drawn ,my eyes look tired and more.LOL All with my new make up on...back to the store it went and back to the make up drawing board with my daughter beside me !!!

    You sure aren't!  I love it when my daughters tell me something looks good on me.  They are also the first ones to tell me if I'm wearing something "below my age" or if it makes me look fat (or fatter than I am), so the compliment means more.

    I love getting compliments from 3 of my kids.

    My teen is my fashion coordinator, lol. There have been numerous times I've asked her which shoes? or sweater? etc.

    Yes, I agree with you.  I think it's because they are so heightened to being embarrassed by us, if they are saying something complimentary, we know they absolutely mean it.

    No, I do too, but not more than dh's.

    Mostly I deeply appreciate the less superficial compliments, like dd wrote me a note for Mother's Day last year that sounded like a personal hallmark card.  I re-read that once in a while. :-)

    The kids are always honest. I could look like complete hell and DH will say I'm beautiful. Can't trust the man lol

    I do feel good when my teenage son compliments me because teenage boys usually don't take much notice  about someone's appearance. It does mean more than my husband saying it too because half the time my husband says it and he barely even looked at me before he says it so I know its just a response whereas my son actually looks before he comments.
