***ABOUT THE BOOK*** “If you’re wondering whether you should be the one to tell your daughter that she ‘getting fat,’ let me tell you now; DON’T. Take a good look through this book and you will see who has already beaten you to it.” Based on Dr. Robyn Silverman's groundbreaking research on plus size models at Tufts University, and filled with searingly honest young voices, Good Girls Don't Get Fat: *Decodes the ripple effects of actions that damage our girls and provides tools to help stop them *Shines light on the positive influence of women who embrace body types of any size &explains how to model the right behavior *Shows how girls, whatever their size, can manage their own strengths, trust their power and accomplish amazing things. With a reassuring yet candid voice, Dr. Robyn hammers home that girls are not worth more when they weigh less and young people are assets to be developed not deficits to be managed.
