How do you help to improve a daughter’s body image?
Many young women experience body image issues. While this is natural, it can be exacerbated by stereotypes perpetuated in the media and unrealistic beauty standards, according to WebMD. Parents can minimize this effect by acknowledging and discussing it with their daughter and by reminding her that no body type is better than another. Since children model what they see, parents should take care not to be critical of other people’s bodies or of their own bodies.
