Sweet soul, ask yourself the following questions to find out if one-on-one coaching is for you…
Am I worried I’m going to pass my own body-image issues onto my kids?
Is feeding my kids fraught? Do we fight? Do they beg and pester and drive me nuts? Are mealtimes painful? Do I fear they’re getting a good enough diet?
Am I’m worried about the messages they get from media? Does it make me feel a bit ill?
Do I know what to say if my kid is bullied about their body?
Do I have the words to talk to friends and family without getting defensive about my child?
Am I worried about my child’s health because of their size but really don’t want to mess up their body image either?
If you answered yes to any of the above, LET ME TAKE YOU HERE:
Even though I’ve had my own issues, I know how to talk to my kids so it will be different for them.
Dinner time is my favourite time of day. We talk, we laugh, we spend quality time with each other. Mealtime fights are a thing of the past.
I don’t worry about the media my kids are watching because I know they can be discerning about what they see.
If my child is bullied about the size of their body, I know exactly what to say to keep them safe.
I know exactly what to say to my child about fat, weight, sugar, media, bullying – so their body image isn’t damaged. It’s such an amazing feeling.
I don’t worry about the size of my child anymore because I know how to talk about health without focusing on weight.
