“As a child I never heard one woman say to me ‘I love my body.’ Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. Not one woman has ever said, ‘I am proud of my body.’ So I make sure to say it to Mia [her daughter], because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.”
Day 17: Kate Winslet
In todays world, many little girls look up to photoshopped models and The Kardashians (who have no talent/more stuffing than a Thanksgiving turkey). Kate was often told she was ‘too big’ or a ‘fat actress’. She is absolutely right in saying we should teach children, at a young age, to love who they are and not try to become a barbie doll through different surgeries and enhancements. We should also be teaching our children healthy choices, the meaning of hard work, and how to be respectful to others.
