The idea of talking to your kids about body image might feel as natural to you as flying to the moon. Yet, this is a conversation that you don’t want to miss. Not front-footing this one with your kids leaves the door wide open for somebody else to do it for you and they won’t be nearly as invested in your child’s future as you are.
This body image stuff isn’t just for girls. Boys are equally part of this discussion. Even as adults, both women and men have a pretty hard time swatting away the barrage of messages about how good we need to look to be loved.
