As a parent, when our child is struggling with seeing themselves as the beautiful person they are it can be tough. The best thing you can do is be a positive role model in this area. Make sure you aren’t modeling negative talk about your own image, or body size. If you are having your own struggle don’t feel bad, just work on your own image so you can be a positive role model in this area. Find out what she loves to do. Enroll her in a class that has a positive effect on her esteem. This can be a wide range of activities from taekwondo, to painting, to rock climbing or horseback riding. As long as it is something that she loves, it will lift her self-image.
Register your daughter for some type of program that will help her discover that she is more than what the eye can see is another step in the right direction. The more your daughter knows who she is the less the outside world can effect her. If you need any help in this area give me a call.
