Your kid comes home from school and says, “mommy, am I fat?” What do you say? How do you react?
We’re talking about practical tips & tools to build body-positive families with therapist and HAES advocate Hilary Kinavey for our WRAP UP of the Femperfect BodyLove Project!
By doing this, you’ll help the podcast spread on iTunes and help empower more ambitious women.
So far through this mini-series, we’ve learned some basics in making body-positive changes for ourselves. And I’ve realized:
- I’m not the only who struggled with confusing food messages growing up
- I don’t feel equipped to change my future family’s relationship with food & body.
This led me to find Hilary Kinavey, therapist and HAES advocate, who wants you to know you are not alone, and in YOUR house, you can have the tools you need when your family hears fat-shaming comments and body size judgements.
NOW we’re READY to start implementing these skills in our families.
I want to raise my daughters & sons in a way that teaches them how to:
- Accept a variety of body sizes/ Not stigmatize or discriminate against people with body sizes that are different than their own
- Make food choices from a place of self-care rather than self-control/body management or hate.
- Treat their bodies with respect & kindness (and how to treat other people’s bodies this way too)
- Apply nourishing practices that will adopt a healthy lifestyle, not one driven by body shame or a desire to change their bodies.
