(Learn why most parenting advice doesn’t work & what to do instead)

Hi, I’m Emma.

I’m the creator of the Raising Body Confident Kids parenting course.

I created the course because I’ve been where you are. I did all the health and wellness ‘things’ and ended up with kids sneaking food, saying they hated their bodies and mealtime battles.

The harder I tried to do all the things we are taught to do – feed them healthy, tell them they’re gorgeous and limit food deemed ‘bad’, the worse things became.

I had an eating disorder growing up and didn’t want them going down the same track.

It wasn’t until I discovered the new parenting tools for raising body confident kids based in Intuitive Eating, HAES and positive parenting discipline that I finally understood why modern health strategies don’t work, and what to do instead. 

What I learned completely changed my family, and it can change yours, too.

I talk from expertise and personal experience.

Emma Wright Profile

When I was nineteen, I told my parents I had bulimia. They didn’t believe me. Or at least believe it was the life-threatening problem that it was. They told me I was beautiful and asked if I ‘was over all that now’ and we hardly spoke of it again.

My parents were great in so many ways. But they didn’t have parenting tools to speak about bodies, food and long-term health to their kids in a way that left us feeling positive or protected from our culture that values thinness and promotes weight-loss like it’s the panacea for everything.

Having now recovered I want to give other smart, dedicated parents like you the tools to parent for body confidence that my folks never had.

Through my online course, coaching, and the workbook, I’ve helped 100’s of parents raise body confident kids and have a better relationship with food and body themselves.

I’m here to help modern parents navigate the piles of misinformation out there – and offer sensible, evidence-based solutions.

Hearing Emma speak was a light bulb moment – I realised that I was unconsciously creating ‘guilt’ food habits for my children. In the age of too much information and so much pressure, it’s refreshing to have guidance from someone who has been there herself and is willing to share her poignant journey. Emma is an inspiration in this minefield of positive body image.
