Love Your Body So Your Daughter Can Learn To Love Hers Too:
Research shows the way a mother feels about her body can impact the way her daughter feels about her body too! Therefore use the following three tips to help your daughter become more body confident.
1). Don't Use The D word: Instead of having talks about diets, have talks about healthy living. Girls as young as 6 have been known to start unhealthy diet habits.
2). Stop Putting Yourself Down: Don't talk about what you don't like about your body all the time: Even when you don't think she's listening, your daughter is holding on to your every word. Therefore, if or when you're having a bad day with how you feel about your body, say something positive about your body with your daughter around. This will boost your self-esteem and hers.
3). Exercise With Your Daughter: As long as she is taught safe form your daughter can start exercising at an early age. Use exercise as a time to bond with your daughter and talk about why your exercise not just why you want to lose weight. The goal is to teach her healthy lifestyle habits!
