    Great article! I grew up with an eating disorder that I still struggle with. I am very careful around my daughter because I want her to be free from that mindset. Very difficult issue. Thanks for the information-

    Thank you. It concerns me when my 100 pound, 5'2", 13 yr old daughter thinks her belly is too big. I always emphasize that everyone's different and I prioritize intellect in her. It's tricky because girls need to know that they are all uniquely beautiful but we also need to remind them that there is more to them than outer appearance. Building on their own personal strengths and talents is what truly matters and helps develop self-esteem.
