    Fellow body image activist Marci Warhaft Nadler whom I've had the pleasure of collaborating with offers a practical and easy to understand guide to help parents navigate through the confusing messages kids and parents receive about health and self image Her compact book arms parents with tools to support their children in resisting harmful media messages including creative exercises they can engage in with their kids to facilitate these tough conversations and to encourage healthy body image I would definitely recommend this resource for parents of both girls and boys regardless of their age Perhaps if there is a follow up resource in the making I would love to see Marci include information about the skewed BMI Body Mass Index and how parents should be leery of how the medical profession may use this tool to determine the health of their children I rate this resource as a 45 but I'm rounding up because I know that it can make a real and positive difference for today's kids For information about Warhaft Nadler's guide check out Full disclosure I am co editor of AdiosBarbiecom

    Among the many books on body image I have come across this is one specifically as the title states for parents It educates parents not just about children’s body consciousness but also gives them a great introduction about how society and the kinds of messages that children are now facing are differentThis would sensitize parents so as to better understand the children if the issues began to play out Needless to say but I will anyway grandparents and caregivers of children will also benefit from reading this bookBodyimage survival guidePublished in 2012 by Efrig Publishing this book has 14 chapters where the first four chapters cover the types of body image issues and uestions that would come up for different ages The ages are grouped into 0 – 3 4 – 8 9 – 12 and 13 onwards teenage yearsThis would allow them to anticipate the different kinds of uestions and the ways that answers can be phrased depending on their ages and developmental stages It gives specific advice on how to address these challenges and how to handle the uestions throughout their childhoodWhat I liked the most is the uick reference guide at the end of the book It consolidates all the different points that were already mentioned in the previous chapters into a handy uick reference right at the end of the book They are divided into sticky uestions and solid answers There are also resources websites and books listed that parents could go to get information and do their researchWhat I found truly remarkable and creative was the family fun self esteem building exercises Parents could do them with their child or children before they became too old and then resistant to whatever it is that their parents had to sayThe book provides warning signs of how one can tell if their child is starting to develop an eating disorder The last two pages of the book contained sample pledges that a parent could come up with their child – one for a younger child and a parent; and another for an older child and the parent In the pledge the child would promise to always treat themselves with kindness and self respect Since there is power in words this will be able to help your child through their teenage yearsI like to recommend this book for parents and feel it would also be useful for sexuality educators in general but especially those who work with parents who have children or teenagers
