Recently, I talked at two schools to two bunches of incredible parents. After one of those talks a mum, with tears in her eyes, a shake in her hands and a wobble in her voice said: “Thank you so much. You’ve got no idea how important this talk is. My daughter is on the brink of death and has been for months and this is the first talk I’ve ever been to that addresses eating disorder prevention. If you can help just one family avoid the heartbreak and relentless fear that we are facing right now, you have done an amazing thing – people don’t get how easily these conditions are triggered, and how hard they are to overcome.”
It’s mothers like her that make me as stubborn as I am to keep doing what I do. It’s mum’s like her that make me realise how much knowledge I have that is important to share.
And it’s with her voice in my ear that I’m telling you about my book. It’s called
If you see any importance in understanding Body Image & Young People I hope you’ll consider reading it.
Here are some quick questions to judge if it might be for you.
If the idea that 80% of women say they have an I Hate My Body moment every single day – and you’d prefer your daughter wasn’t amongst them.
If the idea that 14 year olds are saying they’d rather lose weight than do well in school.
If you fight with your kid about food, or the whole sugar thing does your head in, or social media & body image & kids thing is a mind poke, or you just really don’t want your kid to feel as stink about their body as you did, please consider pledging (the book will address ALL those things).
If you’re on the fence I’m urging you to leap and just do it now – because body image is probably not an urgent issue for you right now, but if it becomes urgent you’ll need a lot more help than this book.
