The "How to Talk to Your Daughter About Her Body" post by skoppelkam is short and powerful. Take this: "Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say 'I’m not eating carbs right now.' Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself." Growing up is tough enough and too many girls struggle with body image. Parents and others with girls in their lives would do right by taking note of their words and messages.
