Monday Morning Advice; Body Image Edition
Every now and then I get an email that strikes close to my heart; either because it’s something I’ve dealt with or it’s an issue that I speak out about. This is an email of the latter.
Dear Guilty Parent,
I have a daughter who is started to hit that stage where her body is changing. She’s getting taller, filling out up top, and she’s very excited about it all. Probably more excited than I am. With all the changes though, she is also starting to get a little bit of a tummy on her. It doesn’t bother me and I don’t think it bothers her – if it is, she isn’t saying anything to me about it and I notice it but I know it’s all part of puberty so I don’t say anything either...
