Embrace the Movie – Loving Bodies of all Shapes and Sizes

If you haven’t seen it yet, please watch the trailer for Embrace, a movie created by Taryn Brumfitt, who founded the organization Body Image Movement to “celebrate the importance of body diversity by encouraging people to be more accepting of who they are, to use positive language regarding their bodies and others, and to prioritize health before beauty.”

It is so important as we parent our children to remember that their bodies are beautiful and wonderful at any size. After growing up in a society that promotes perfection, especially among women, it can be hard not to turn the critical eye we have learned to focus on ourselves onto our children. But doing that can cause so much harm to their sense of self-worth and opportunity.

If you have a child with an eating disorder like binge eating disorder, bulimia or anorexia, this movie is even more important. Eating disorders are complex in terms of causation and recovery, but it is clear that body image is involved. It is also clear that parents heavily influence their children’s sense of what is a “good” body.

Even if you can’t see the full film, watching this trailer may help you begin to understand the body-positivity movement that is slowly but surely taking over social media and the Internet, as women, men and people of all shapes and sizes embrace who they are and stop trying to look like a Photoshopped model.
