Three parents with five kids between them (age ranges 2-12) gather to discuss what it’s like to parent with body kindness, endure a child’s body shame at the doctors office, re-educate your child after the school’s health class taught diet tricks, what to say when your kid first says “fat” — as early as age three! And other things you need to know about raising kids with body kindness.
