My 10-year-old daughter keeps telling me that she is fat. She isn’t. What can I say to her?


With so much talk about weight loss and health, it is only natural that your child will one day begin talking about being “fat,” even if she isn’t. Here are a few points you can bring up to your little one:

– Everybody has a different body shape. No two people are exactly alike.
– Beautiful people in magazines are usually Photoshopped.
– Kids grow at different rates.
– Health is more important than appearance.

You might also want to see where this attitude is coming from. Is this coming from a classmate, a teacher or a family member? It might be wise to have a talk with the source.
