Health Tip: Help Your Child with Body Image
Avoid negative language

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- What you say rubs off on your children, even if you don't think they're listening. So when you're talking about body image, remember that a positive attitude is good for both of you.

The Womenshealth.gov website suggests:

  • Don't speak negatively about food, weight, body shape and body size.
  • Provide an array of healthy meals and snacks, and let your child make decisions about what to eat.
  • Praise your child for values, accomplishments, efforts and talents. Communicate openly and frequently.
  • Limit TV time, but watch it together so you can talk about the images you see.
  • Get active at your child's school, and support policies that oppose discrimination, teasing and harassment.
