I am the nanny of two 10yearold girls this summer, and I am concerned with comments they have made about their looks.
Both are normalsize, healthy girls with regular bodies, but I have heard them say how fat they think they are at least five or six times. One time one girl complained about her “big belly,” and the other said, “I need to work out soooo bad; I’m so fat.” Amy, these girls are 10! I always tell them that they are beautiful girls and are a healthy size.
I am wondering if this is the proper way to handle this kind of talk, or what I could possibly do to make these girls believe that they are not fat.
I do not want them to suffer the same selfesteem issues so many women (including myself) face.— Wondering in Illinois
