Here we go! Are you ready to Re-write the Story with me?
WHAT STORY? The story we've been told since childhood that only slim, toned and blemish-free bodies are acceptable and must be dieted and strived for, ESPECIALLY in the run up to summer. The media's to blame right? Partly, yes, but what if you asked yourself this...
HOW DO I SPEAK ABOUT MY BODY IN FRONT OF MY CHILD?
The way we speak about our bodies and the appearance of others within earshot of children will stay with them for a LONG time. The run up to summer is ALWAYS a bombardment of diet and exercise ads, with non-inclusive images of bodies flaunted to tout the illusive 'Beach Body' and this year we're more vulnerable than ever.
So! Eliza, Mum and some of their friends from My Mum's a Tiger are back and ready to have a BIG conversation. We've got some shocking statistics, brilliant guest posts and loads of resources and book reviews to share with you over the next few months and would love for you to join in and help #rewritethestory for our future generations!
If you've got strong thoughts on this or can recommend books (or Instagram accounts) that include inclusive bodies, I would love to get you involved, please DM me
