Kids are dying to be perfect and parents feel powerless. I’m helping them both!

Posted in Uncategorized by fitvsfiction on March 24, 2013


This is my book. The book I wish my own mother had had when I was struggling and she felt so powerless. It states the problems but is also full of solutions, games, projects, resources and cheat sheets for when your kids ask you sticky questions and you need solid answers. The negative messages our kids will hear from the media and society will be loud. The positive messages we give them as their parents need to be even LOUDER!

Kids as young as 5 and 6 years old are already feeling like being themselves is just not good enough and this is leading them down some pretty dangerous paths. Instead of waiting until we see a problem starting, we need to act NOW! I’m teaching parents how to empower their kids to love who they are and believe in everything can they be, instead of feeling like they don’t measure up to who they think society expects them to be.

Along with projects and games for kids of all ages are two body image pledges for you to sign with your kids as a promise to treat yourselves and those around you with the love and respect we all deserve.

If you’re a parent struggling with your own body image issues, learn ways to stop the cycle of insecurity and be the role model you want to be.

I lost 20 years of my life to body image and eating disorder issues and am now determined to help kids and their parents avoid the trauma I couldn’t.

We are so much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for!

Self-worth shouldn’t be measured in pounds!
