When registration filled a week in advance for the Spirit & Place event “Body Image and Your Girl,” I realized just how relevant the topic of body image is to greater Indianapolis families. After the event on Sunday, I discovered the broader community’s interest in the body image conversation when I saw the Indianapolis Star featured a front page article recapping the “Body Image and Your Girl” event. Read the article for a review of the girl activities and adult discussion of positive body image.

The Indy Star has done my work for me in reviewing Sunday’s educational and inspiring event, but I’d like to add to their listed healthy body image tips for girls. Please read and share with others the parent resource for positive body image available at Sunday’s event. And leave a comment below if you have additional advice or examples of how you build positive body image!
