Body image is the mental picture you have of your body. A healthy body image is when you feel comfortable with your body and accept the way you look. An unhealthy body image is when you feel uncomfortable, embarrassed or unhappy with your body. As a parent you can promote a healthy body image in your kids from a young age with these tips.
Growing up can be hard at times. As a parent, listening to your children and being supportive can go a long way. Remember it is never too early to promote a healthy body image and positive self-esteem. It’s a gift that you can give your children for life!
