diet and overweightwant to be thin There is no point of trying to make you understand you just won't understand! Things are different now! You just do not know me! These are but a few of the words that a parent can hear from their daughter and of course their son as well, but this article in particular is talking about the young girls struggle. Girls have it different then boys. Yes, that is true. We can except a boy with a big belly, but a girl she is just not "a real girl".
Think of it for a moment financial structure of society would not be the same if it were not for females. Look at all the stores that exist just to make the female more attractive. Make-up, diamonds, clothing and tummy tucks and on and on. Yes males can find these things too but not in the same volume. So hear we find a young girl born into our society with the struggle to be pretty and sexy for who the male. It is the attractive model who sells the clothes or cars or whatever, and she is nice and thin. She often acquires her self worth by her appearance. She constantly is looking for that affirmation that she is some one special, and may be not even special, just that she fits in.
So how does a parent help their young girl develop self worth? How does a parent help their struggling girl to become a"WHOLE PERSON" in a society that values her for only her shape? You see it is not easy for parents to help their struggling daughter,especially mothers because she to is influenced by the ideas they want their daughter to loose weight, and the mother has the same struggle. Their clothes are meticulously chosen, each detail keeping with today's fashion. They wear makeup and body jewelry all to look cool. So, food can become a source of anxiety and terror because it can represent weight gain. Mothers have a very important role and being a positive role model is the number one role. Many times we can see ourselves in our parents.
So for things Mothers can do to help their struggling daughters to grow into a healthy women is: 1. Never compare her to another person. Comparing only reinforces a negetive self image. For example, if your daughter is overweight and you are walking down the mall and see a slender sexy female in a shop do not say," would you not like to look like that." You must develop positive self image in your daughter because any weight control is attempted. Remember you and daughter may never be as thin as a model, your biological barreirs may be different, but that does not mean that you can not be a good healthy weight for you and feel good about it.
2. Attractiveness begins with the attitude. If you and your daughter are happy in your selves, if you believe that your self worth comes from what you do and who you are not by what you look like you are both on the road to fulfillment. As a mother continuelly re-affirm every day that you are special and your daughter is special. She is specail because she can do this. She is special because she is deeply loved. She is special because she brings joy to your life.
3. Loosing weight not be some one now that has self worth, because you have self worth, but you want to loose weight because that is healthy, and healthy people feel much better. Healthy people feel better physically and mentally. Our bodies are but machine, and machines break down depending on how they are looked after and our bodies are the same.
Finally, loosing weight and exercise must become a mind set. So often we do things because we have, and that is OK and we should, however, if can develop a routine a mind set then finding a proper diet and exercise program that fits you can be fun. The mother is going to be building a relationship with her daughter and this relationship is a treasure that money can not even buy. A relationship that builds positive memories. %%CUSTOMTOKEN28%%Mothers and daughterParenting young girls
