December 10, 2018

You want your child to love their body, and it's troubling when they don't. "I worry about my oldest daughter. She says how fat she is. We have purchased cute clothes that she loves but she compares herself to others and their body shapes and sizes. What can I do to better support her?" In this episode, Carol and Anne share useful tips to help your child swim against the tide of self-criticism. If your child is nearing 12 years old, or is already in the teen years, you need to listen to this episode. This week’s Parenting Practice This episode is full of information. Listen, use it, and invite your children to use it as well. Then write out this affirmation and put it in the family bathroom: "When I look in the mirror, I see a healthy and fit body that I love." What you put your attention on, you create more of.  Learn more from Carol each week!
