Talking Sense with Dr Martha

How Do I Respond When My Child Calls Their Body Fat?

May 1, 2023

How do you speak about your body? We all have a self-critical voice and for some this is louder than others. How do you then respond when it's your child talking about their body as 'fat' in a way that is shaming or negative of themselves? Dr Martha talks about the importance of talking about 'fat' in ways that are neutral and helping children accept and value difference in themselves and others sharing ideas and strategies you can implement in every day life.
