What happens when our daughter tells us she’s fat? Or our son begins to ask questions about his private parts? These questions are enough to throw off any good parent. So how can we raise our kids to have a healthy body image in a culture that has distorted it?
That’s the conversation we have today with Linda Noble and Linda Stewart, two leading voices helping parents talk to their children about body image and sex through THE Conversation Workshop. This is part one of a two part series.
In this episode, Linda and Linda discuss a framework for the Theology of the Body, and how we as parents can be ready anytime these conversations arise with our kids.
the 2 most common parenting approaches to the body and the one we need to take
- the 3 truths we need to instill in our kids about their body-selves on an ongoing basis
- practical questions we receive from parents
