Your biggest wish for her right now is that she would stop thinking about what her body looks like so much. You've seen it affect her confidence and the time she spends with friends. If there were a proven way for her to learn how to stop obsessing over the way her body does or doesn't look, do you think that would come as a relief for her?
What I offer teenage girls is different than anything they have heard before. Her body is her best teacher, no matter what it looks like. Her job is to develop skills that allow her to value her body for what it can do.
She may have seen her body as her biggest failure and a reason to be left out. If she has struggled with what her body looks like, she may feel completely out of control. But now, she has a chance to work with a group who are all progressing towards a inevitable achievement. The group class format offers her weekly sessions with her peers to discuss what has been their most painful challenge.
When I was a teenage girl, I looked different from my sisters. They were thin and popular. I was overweight and shy. I believed people didn't want to be around me because the way my body looked. I remember staring in the mirror and telling myself how wrong my body was. I prayed my body would just look different than it did so I could feel better about myself.
Here's how I help teenage girls
Raising a teenage girl takes a village of support in a world that is set on getting her to believe that if she just looked different then her world would be perfect. It takes a great deal of trust to get help from outside resources. It is my greatest desire for you to trust allowing your daughter to be in my care and learn more about her most treasured gift you created just for her.
