Expressive art by Shanea Gaiger. Social norms and the media are teaching our kids and adults to feel uncomfortable about their bodies and themselves. We need to teach them the opposite. To love themselves as they are. It is crucial to help them overcome body image issues to prevent eating disorders. Please try not to use “fat” and “diet” at home or to them. Young kids are susceptible; teach them to be comfortable with their developing bodies, boost their confidence and promote a positive body image.
