Worried about your child’s food and body issues?
Our kids are showing more food and body issues than ever before. Their pursuit of “clean eating,” and attempting to shape and control their bodies is driving increasing rates of disordered eating and eating disorders.
Parents can help, but it requires us to learn some new skills. We have to rebel against the false cultural beliefs about food and bodies, and pursue true health for body, mind, and spirit.
This course will help parents learn how to address children’s food and body issues. You’ll learn how to adjust your own beliefs and eliminate any harmful behaviors that can impact your kids.
Have your own food and body issues?
It’s virtually impossible to live in our culture without struggling with some food and body issues. Most of us believe the countless media and social messages we have heard that we need to diet and control our bodies in order to be healthy.
But these messages have led us astray. They have been driven largely by for-profit industries – the diet industry now has $70 billion in annual revenue. This figure has doubled in our lifetime, and our food and body issues have risen in tandem with the diet industry.
We can our kids be truly healthy. We just have to learn how to think about food and bodies without the pressure of diet culture. This takes practice and effort, but it is entirely possible. This course will help you get started.
How to raise a child who is truly healthy
We can raise kids who are truly healthy. And the only change we need to make is to understand the difference between health and what we have been told is “healthy.”
We can learn to avoid dangerous practices that have been promoted by the diet industry. Instead, we can show our children that food is not something to be feared. We can stop weight and food shaming our kids and help them pursue health at any size. This course will help you get started.
