One of the things parents often aren't aware of, is how they teach their kids about being in and with a body, by how they react to their own bodies. Ever notice how your children are constantly in tune to you and how you respond to life and its situations? Do they see you honor and be grateful for your body? Or do they see that you are never happy with how you look, how you feel, how you move? Do they see you frustrated with your body?
What if you could be different with and in your body that would not only create more ease and joy for you but would also be an example to your children of how they can be in their bodies. As a matter of fact, what if you looked to your children for some ideal clues of how to be with and in your body with joy, not judgment or complaint?
Adults can go into all kinds of judgment when it comes to talking about our bodies.
Not so with kids. Until children are taught how to judge their bodies, they don't. They are free to explore and discover their bodies in ways that allow them to BE with their bodies.
AND then...parents, culture, religion, society, step in and take that all away changing from being in allowance of our bodies to judgment, comparison and criticism.
Ask yourself, "If my body were my best friend, is this how I would treat it, talk to it and relate to it?"
"Do I want the children of the world to grow up judging their bodies as never good, perfect or right?"
"What can I do to stop and change the way that I relate to my body?"
