Several fans related to Arnold’s message
Arnold received a lot of positive feedback on the post, much of it coming from moms who have experienced similar feelings about their kids.

“I’m learning I have love myself so I can love others more deeply. How much better would this world be if we did that,” someone else said.
“They SEE and HEAR everything! So important to surround your kids that talk kindly of themselves and others,” a third Instagram user added.
“Ugh I feel this so hard right now. We must raise our daughters strong and fearless,” read another comment.
