The Raising Body-Confident Kids E-Course
Can you relate?
You’re worried your kids will hate their body or be obsessed with food
Your child already doesn’t like their body and you’ve no idea what to say
You want them to be healthy, but don’t want to cause body image issues
You have issues of your own that you don’t want to give to your kids
You’re in THE RIGHT PLACE.
Body Image & Kids?
It’s a bit of a mind poke
That’s because most health and wellbeing info
is based on nutrition and exercise and completely misses
the very important influence of CULTURAL conditioning
So it can really help…
to widen your perspective and learn
the things that will actually make a difference.
It only takes 10 mins 2 x a week over two short months…
To learn & implement,
the 10 principles of raising body confident kids.
Who’s this course for???
It’s definitely for anyone who has a kid they’re worried about but doesn’t know how to help them.
It’s also particularly geared toward parents who understand what it’s like to feel a bit sh*t about their own body (or have someone close to them who does) and REEEEEALLY don’t want their kids stressing in the same way.
And of course, it’s for parents (and caregivers) who are curious and dedicated about how to make their kid’s lives rich and rewarding without being stopped by cultural stereotypes or prejudices.
What you’ll get…
Here’s what they’re saying…
“Emma’s course was a life-changer for our family. We learnt so much vital information and practical tips that really gave us the confidence to have those hard conversations and answer those hard questions!! As the mother of three girls, I feel such responsibility to arm them with the tools they need to feel ok in their bodies and navigate this world that has such emphasis on looking a certain way. I highly recommend this for every single parent out there!!”
Michelle, Videographer and Mum of Three
“I was struggling to address the issue of weight in our family conversations. Emma helped me shift perspective away from my daughter to society itself. This is so empowering. (Because) we are neck-deep in negative messaging and discrimination based on body-appearance.”
Anisha, Wayfinder Coach & Arts Consultant and Mum of Two
LIGHT BULB MOMENTS…
“Listening to Emma 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 mine field of positive body image.”
Rachel, Business Consultant and Mum of Four
TEARS OF GRATITUDE…
“Emma this is wonderful. I tried just the toes and feet bit (of principle 4) with my daughters last night (one is 12 and one is 10). My 10 year old wiped away tears of gratitude and love for her feet :o) Thank you!”
But really, why should you learn from me?
I know a metric tonne about body-confidence and how to talk to kids so they feel good about their body. I’ve spoken to hundreds of parents about body image and kids. I’ve written a postgrad thesis called: Playing with Beauty: How social expectations of appearance affects athletic performance.
But more than that… 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.
Having now recovered I want to give other smart, dedicated parents like you, the language to talk about bodies, that my folks never had. My parents were great in so many ways. But they didn’t know how to speak about bodies and 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 at every turn.
