BYOU (Be Your Own You!) Magazine is truly an inspirational and positive publication for girls about ages 8-16. In a culture where women and girls are regarded as sex symbols, it’s so important to reinforce the message of self value and self-esteem. A subscription to BYOU Magazine is the perfect gift.
–New and Natural Mom
What I really love about BYOU Magazine is that they feature positive celebrity role models, self-esteem tips, advice, posters, quizzes, crafts, puzzles fun content, games and much more. Each issue is jammed pack with something to peak the interest of whatever personality your daughter has. And has topics which include friendships, bullying, inner beauty, empowerment and more.
–Not In Jersey
[My daughter] is super excited to continue getting the magazine and reading it bi-monthly. Each issue contains positive teen and tween role models, craft ideas, puzzles to exercise your brain, silly jokes, and of course, stories that inspire self-esteem and empowerment.
I was thrilled to find a magazine that focuses on stories about real girls, how to make a positive difference and community service while also featuring fun games, crafts, advice and jokes.
A magazine specifically for tween girls that provides them positive role models, shows them that regular girls can be heroes, and that beauty comes in a variety of packages, small, large, light, dark, it doesn’t matter… beauty comes from within.
–Mom Pop Culture
It provides a great forum for girls who have questions and are seeking advice on their friendships and school struggles. At this age, it is really refreshing to read articles about bullying and cliques and fitting in, and not have to worry about your child reading about things they just aren’t ready for yet.
–Ottawa Mommy Club
It is definitely not your average teen magazine and is such a great way to show teens how to become confident and empowered. I love that is makes everyday “average” girls heroes. It also lets girls know that they do not have to conform to the majority by encouraging them to following their own path.
–Party Of Three, But Room For More
BYOU is a great resource – you can use the magazines themselves in group and individual settings, or as inspiration for classroom, group, and individual activities for girls and boys.
–School Counseling by Heart
I personally consider it a lot better than most of the teen magazines out there today, which mostly focus on fashion, and very little on becoming a confident and empowered teen.
–Edge of Insanity
This magazine has a good balance of both entertainment and education, teaching these girls self-esteem in a way that will hopefully be life-sustaining.
–Close To Home
It is a nice mix of fun content like quizzes, puzzles, jokes, and craft ideas combined with more serious articles, tips and Q&A on topics like friendship, girls making a difference, BFF dramas and bullying.
The messages in this magazine are suitable for all girls, and unlike the newsstand magazines that seem to want our girls to think about how they look on the outside, BYOU focuses on nurturing the inside. I wish I could give all of my readers with daughters a subscription to this magazine.
–Moms Get Real
While I lingered over the star-studded pages of ‘Teen Beat’ as a girl, as a mother I’d much prefer my daughter to be engrossed in magazines like ‘BYOU’. The message “be your own you” is an excellent mantra, I think, for mother and daughter alike.
Now she (my daughter) has her magazine and I can be thankful that it is one designed just for her.
My favorite part? The pages that featured readers and their advice, their favorite things and what they feel makes them unique. Sometimes they even spoke about their own struggles, so that other readers can relate to them. And the readers were a diverse group of kids.
-Notes of Jubilee, Mom Blogger
BYOU is a great choice of positive, fun reading for girls & plenty of articles to read through. I highly recommend it. You’ll love the various content that will appeal to most girls 7- 15 years old. The photography & quality of BYOU magazine was high quality, the articles in BYOU magazine well written.
I think BYOU is a magazine we will have in our home for many years to come. It is full of great articles and fun projects.
It makes me so happy to see a magazine like BYOU where my girls can flip the pages and see girls that look like them, to read articles about young girls all over the world making a difference, embracing who they are, and loving themselves.
–The Mahogany Way
…the best magazine available on the market. I am so grateful for this magazine. You will never know.
–A Mom’s Rantings
BYOU Magazine is fantastic encouragement for girls today and a wonderful resource for moms.
It was a magazine focused on empowering young girls to be a positive force…and just being yourself…well, it was a no brainer.
–House of Tubers
As soon as my daughter started reading it, she was glued to the magazine.
Today’s media makes girls feel not good enough, though what they are seeing & comparing themselves to isn’t even reality. BYOU Magazine is working against this message that “you’re not good enough,” and that’s definitely something worthwhile.
–If I Had Something To Say
I would definitely choose this over some of the other “teen” magazines out there now. Mom-Approved!
Give the gift of BYOU Magazine to your tween. It is the only tween magazine WeHeartMom has personally approved!
–We Heart Mom
…a big thumbs up!
–Hanging Off the Wire
BYOU Magazine- or Be Your Own You – is much like Seventeen of our generation, but better.
It’s all about driving home the point of having healthy self-esteem. However, it’s fun. It has games, puzzles, interviews, and great information – done in a fun way, but still with that amazing self-esteem message!
It was very refreshing to find BYOU and see that there is an alternative to mainstream magazines, which clearly focus on looks and materialistic wealth.
–Live Like A Mom
What I liked about BYOU Magazine is how wonderful it made my girls feel and how my girls started to think about all the great things about themselves while reading it.
–Daily Adventrues of a Work at Home Mom
Another favorite for the both of us is the fun craft projects like the Attitude of Gratitude journal. What a great way to inspire girls to have a positive attitude and to be thankful for all of the positive things they have in life. There is even another project for inspirational bookmarks that would be perfect to use in your personalized gratitude journal. These projects are great for us to do together or a fun way for her to spend some time away from the computer.
