Yesterday in class, my students and I talked about the challenges to a healthy body image. I shared a few tips we came up with to help children and adolescents develop a healthy body image.
Here’s a quote that Media Power Youth shared with me on this topic
This reminded me of this photo series of Olympic athletes. The beauty of this series is the way it shows the power of the body as an agent that DOES amazing things rather than depicting the body as an object that LOOKS a certain way. These types of photos are great to prompt conversations with children and adolescents about body image and agency.
