More Than a Body

$25.00 AUD

We want to help you raise body confident tween and teen girls!  This webinar will be a bit special, and full of raw and real conversation about body dissatisfaction and research-based tips to help girls thrive. 

About this webinar.

Remember what it was like to be a body-conscious, teen or tween?

Body dissatisfaction is an incredibly normal part of growing up, so we want to be alert, not alarmed, when confidence begins to wobble. The changes that come with puberty are very public, and our girls get so much unhelpful feedback from the world about their appearance, and how they are supposed to look. 

This webinar is for parents who want to build self-acceptance, responsibility and body confidence in their tween or teen girl. It’s going to be a bit special, and full of raw and real conversation about body dissatisfaction and research-based tips to help girls thrive. After all, we want her to know that she is so much more than a body.

What to expect.

Amanda and I will be sharing the stage for this live webinar. Amanda is not only an educator who has worked within a paediatric hospital but a woman who has walked the journey of body dissatisfaction herself. I think personal experience goes a long way when talking non-judgementally about this topic, so I’m thrilled she is joining me. I am looking forward to having a rich conversation with her.

Together we will explore the key issues around body dissatisfaction and our girls, with a conversation that focuses on:  

  • What body dissatisfaction is and how it is impacting our girls. 
  • The typical trajectory of self-esteem and what we can expect as our girls grow. 
  • How to talk to a girl about her growing body and create a positive narrative around food and exercise.  
  • What to say when your child says they are fat.  
  • The significant impact that mothers have in their girls’ lives.
  • The importance of growing our own body confidence so we can better support them.
  • The hurdles girls face through social media, peer pressure, diets, exercise fads, cosmetic injectables and the beauty industry.
  • Strategies to build our girl’s self-esteem and relationship with themselves.
