Let your child know through your words and actions you accept him or her unconditionally. If your child comes to you upset about his/her large body, let your child know you love them as he/she is, that you love them no matter what and no matter what size.

We are happy to host this giveaway with one of Laura's favorite instructors, Jen G.! With tomorrow's blog post focusing on beauty and body image. We wanted to focus on internal health as opposed to external health and appearance.
