How many times have you heard prepubescent girls say, "I think I look too fat" or "My belly is too big" or "I can't stand my legs." These phrases are all too common and are emblematic of the silent epidemic of low body self esteem among girls aged 9 to 14 -- and many grown women -- in America. In today's radio show, Dr. Robyn Silverman, author of "Good Girls Don't Get Fat: how Weight Obsession is Messing up Our Girls and What We Can Do to Help Them Thrive Despite It," will teach you: - The secret impact that mothers have on their daughters' body images; The ways that fathers unknowingly sabotage their daughters' confidence; How cruelty in the guise of family humor can destroy a girl's self-image; How teachers, who allegedly should know better, can be a part of the program, How friends can often be the enemy; and How girls need to "kiss their assets" and embrace who they are inside and out. Dr. Silverman is a leading child and adolescent specialist with a focus on character education and body/self-esteem development during childhood, adolescence and young adulthood,
