On Body Image

I’ve mentioned before that this is something I feel really passionate about.  I found an interesting article the other day about photoshopping magazines that really kind of infuriated me.  The media plays a huge role in the way young girls view themselves, not to mention women and moms.  If you have a spare 5 minutes, it is an interesting read.

I occasionally read a mommy blog called Power of Moms and they have recently posted 2 articles on this topic that shed light on how to develop and maintain a healthy body image, especially after having children (we’ve all been there, right?).  I think the author really puts it pretty beautifully.  You can find part 1 here and part 2 here.  Some readers have some great ideas.  I don’t have a daughter, but if I ever do, I’ll hopefully have all the tools to make her confident woman who values so much more than just the shape and size of her body.

Happy reading!
