Helping mothers create a body confident world for themselves and their kids

As mums, of course we want happy, healthy kids who have a good relationship with their body. And we want that for ourselves too. Doh!

But being a parent can feel like we’re constantly judging ourselves (and being judged) about what our kids eat and how they look. It’s a mine-field out there and we’re not being given helpful info about how to have good conversations with them or help them have an easy-breezy relationship with food and their body.

We don’t need to be perfect to help our kids have a different experience than most people. Regardless of where we are ourselves, we can:
~ Accept and appreciate our bodies regardless of shape or size
~ Have happy, healthy kids who have a good relationship with their body
~ Feel confident to respond well when a child says “I hate my fat fill-in-the-blank”
~ Create food and body rules at home that lead to good long term health

Come explore the five ways we can work together here

I’ve spoken to hundreds of mothers about body image and their kids. Supporting them in having positive conversations that benefit their children. So as a family they don’t get stuck in the downward spiral that body shaming and negative self-talk brings.

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 know how 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 every darn thing.

Having now recovered I want to give other smart, dedicated parents like you the language to talk about bodies that my folks never had.

Through education, 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.

The day my first child was born I promised her I wasn’t going to let her hate her body like I hated mine. She was going to be slim and fit and everyone was going to know I was doing an amazing job. But the older she got the more we’d fight about what she ate. 

And frankly, I was terrified her chubby body was going to get bigger and all the dangers I thought came with that plagued me. The harder I policed the more resistant she got. It was awful. 

And then I started to see guilt and shame and fear in her eating. Hiding, sneaking, gobbling. I had no idea what to do. I was already doing all the things I thought I should be doing.

So I went into research mode and what I learned shocked me. 

Raising body confident kids eCourse
  • I learned that health and weight are not nearly as linked as we’ve been lead to believe. 
  • I discovered that eating disorders don’t come from psychological weakness, they are a very normal biological response to certain environments. 
  • And the environment created by so many of our health and wellness rules actually fosters disordered eating.

Knowing these things changed everything!! Firstly, I found profound freedom from my own food and body demons. I had no idea such freedom was even possible.

Then, about a year down the track, the most magical thing happened.

My daughter said “Mum, there’s a boy in my class who said he hates his fat tummy. But I know his body is a good one because everyone’s’ body is.”

I knew in that moment I made good on my promise. That she wasn’t going to hate her body like I had hated mine.


I’ve taken all my advice, guidance and knowledge for you and created my Body Confidence Coaching Programs. They are safe spaces where you get to create better inner narratives about food and bodies for yourself and your kids.

As women, we often struggle with our body image. And we feel so sad and powerless when we see the same thing happening to our kids. But how can we change things when we’re struggling ourselves? 

The things we’ve been taught, to limit food and increase exercise, don’t work and are causing stress for the whole family. 

It may feel like you should wait until you see red-flags showing in your kids. Or until you have more time in your overflowing schedule (I’m a mum too, I GET it!). But your kid’s body image is developing as we speak. The seeds of discontent are being sown. The very best time to act is now.

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.
