Missychick21's Journal, 05 February 2014

Venting time...There is all the talk of the plus-sized princess and people freaking out saying it will teach young girls it's ok to be fat. Seriously?! Does nobody have an issue with the toothpick princesses now that teach our little girls that if they have any curves or anything they are too big and must practically starve themselves to appease society? I am NOT condoning being unhealthy but I would love there to be a more realistic-sized princess for my daughter to see. She has autism so it is difficult to "teach" her to love her body instead of mimic what she sees. She is practically skin and bone now but has beautiful curvy hips and bum. And she thinks she is too fat! She is only turning 7 this month, she is way to young for a body complex. I try to teach her healthy habits but I also try to keep my self esteem issues hidden from her. It's bad enough she has a fat Mom to begin with but I just want her to love herself no matter what she looks like!

This is my personal journal, therefore it is my right to express my opinion, so please if you want to say rude or negative things to me just don't...Thank you :)

Amber Rogers over at gokaleo.com is a mom with two girls, she turned her life around in order to show them a good healthy lifestyle. One of her daughters is naturally thin while the other is more of a thicker build, which goes to show you that genetics are entirely a wild card. It sounds similar to your post here -- check out her story, you may find it encouraging as I have! I have boys, but my heart just aches for the messages society's females are being bombarded with..

Thank you ennaejay :) My "fat mom" comment was more of what she is stuck seeing daily vs that she is doomed genetically...if that makes sense... Though guaranteed she will have wide hips and a curvy butt, that part really is in her genetics lol

There is a big difference between teaching our children to be OK with their bodies and teaching them that it is OK to be unhealthy. I hate to hear that your daughter thinks she is fat. Something is very wrong with our society.

I constantly tell her how amazing and beautiful she is, I just hope that it sticks at some point. I think seeing me stress over my weight isn't helping her body image either :( I really try to keep any comments said around her about just being healthy...not weight loss or being fat or anything like that but I don't know how it all processes in her mind...
