Young People and Body Image
Has your child’s body image ever concerned you? We live in a world saturated with some pretty skewed views around bodies. There’s no doubt that young people are exposed to these views and as parents, we should be aware of how we can help our children grow into body confident young people.
That’s why Crofton Downs Primary School said yes to an opportunity to secure Family Body Confidence Consultant Emma Wright to talk to our community about raising young people without a messed up body image.
The event covers:
How to build great body confidence in kids
How to deal with the whole ‘sugar’ and kids thing
Social media strategies
How to talk about fat and weight without awkwardness or fear you’re causing issues
Eating disorder prevention
Body size bullying (teaching your kids how to respond powerfully)
Practical steps to make your home a body positive environment
