Every parent we know wants their kids to feel good about their bodies. But here’s the tricky thing about body confidence: It has little to do with feeling good about our appearance, and much more to do with feeling good inside. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with three parents striving to break intergenerational cycles around body image. She not only shares practical strategies for helping your child feel worthy from the inside out, but also explores how to mindfully engage with society’s beauty ideals.
