What if your kid’s teacher told them they could/should lose a little weight?
Or inspected everyone’s lunchbox telling the class which lunches were bad and which were good?
Or made everyone keep a food diary that had to be shared with the class?
Or lined everyone up from lightest to heaviest and then did a section on the obesity epidemic?
What if, after that, you notice your child getting anxious at the dinner table, or not wanting to eat in case they get fat, or not wanting to go to school now because everyone in the class is making fun of them or their lunchbox.
What would you say to the teacher?
What would you say to your child so their body shame didn’t fester?
These are the kinds of important conversations the super dedicated mums I work with are having.
And this is the kind of feedback I get over and over again…
“You are an absolutely fabulous voice of reason in a world gone mad about diets and all that stuff. You’ve helped me heaps about what to say to my kids. Thanks!”
Learning how to have these conversations with your kids (and teachers) without causing rifts or making things worse for your child can feel miraculous.
The secret lies somewhere between having the science to back you up, the words to use and the compassion to move everyone forward.
That’s why I’m head down, bum up, creating a workbook for dedicated mamas like yourself called…
The Body Confidence Workbook
A practical guide to raising kids who love their body.
It’ll take you through the 10 Principles of raising kids who love their body.
Here’s a video of PART ONE of principle ONE (you’ll have to forgive my dressing gown!)
Stay tuned for how you can pre-order a workbook and change the future for your kids.
