GIRLS BODY IMAGE
We are all surrounded by unrealistic, perfectionistic messages about how we should look. And while we may not be able to shield our kids from all the diet talk, fat chat and photoshopped images that surround us, we can certainly clean up what happens in our homes. If your child is struggling with body image issues, here are some tips for you.
I recently did an interview with Janice Bremis, founder of the Eating Disorders Resource Services, to discuss my new children's book, Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Breaking the "I Feel Fat" Spell. I thought I would post our discussion in the hopes of reaching more kids and families who need help in this area.
I just really want to share the truth of the sadness that I carry with me, and how it shows up in my life. I hope that little girls will get to grow up in a kinder world, and have more body positivity present in their lives as a result of body advocates like Ashley Graham stepping into the spotlight recently.
