Chasing the Dream

Abstract

Having two young daughters that are heading into the mind field of puberty, my goal is to keep them as balanced as possible, offering advice that will help them to accept their changing bodies. This is a tricky thing to do when everywhere we look we are surrounded by the multimillion pound marketing of the thin ideal and body control. Young people need to be educated with the skills to critically evaluate and challenge cultural messages, including expert knowledge, if they are to stand any chance of accepting their bodies, avoid prejudices, exclusion, self-loathing, starvation or excessive eating.
