I am fat. How would you talk about my body with your child? Would you just ignore it? Your child won’t. Has your child ever asked you why someone is “so big” or something along those lines? Did you avoid the question? Stumble through it, perhaps? More than anyone else, you shape your child’s feelings about not just other people’s bodies but their own bodies as well. That means you should be ready to have conversations with your children about accepting and celebrating their bodies and other people’s bodies.
