We’re totally in love with this video! There’s something special about training your girls to love themselves. Erykah Badu shared this special moment on facebook with her daughters Mars, 5, and Puma, 10.

With so much pressure to be perfect for “likes”, we’ve got to take it back to old school, which is simply good home training.

Watch the video below. What do you do to instill confidence into your children?

Check out the lyrics to “Try”:

Put your make up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim
So they like you. Do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong
So they like you. Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try
