How many of us are dissatisfied with our bodies?
I grew up drinking Tab and wishing I looked like Farrah Fawcett, maybe you wished you looked like Brooke Shields or Jennifer Anniston, or Madonna.
If we thought it was tough to accept and love our bodies and ourselves back then imagine what it must be like for our girls today. And it can be an on-going challenge to appreciate our bodies and to support our daughters to do the same.
Today, I’m talking with world-leading body image expert and psychology professor Dr. Charlotte Markey about helping our girls to understand, accept, and appreciate their bodies and her latest book, The Body Image Book for girls, Love Yourself and Grow Up Fearless.
We talk about the diet culture, some of the things that we do or say that are unhelpful and can even be damaging to our girls and how can we set a good example with their own eating and exercise habits and self-talk.
