Body Image Concerns

Body Image Concerns

Modern pressures leaving girls with crippling fears about how they look

The NSPCC reports that ChildLine received 1,596 contacts from girls worried about body image in 2015/16, a 17% increase on the previous year. Tips for parents whose children are having issues with how they look include: remind your child not to compare themselves to other people and that everyone is different; talk to them about what they like about themselves and what you like about them, focusing on things other than appearance.
