Did you know that 50% of primary school aged girls are dissatisfied with their bodies?
Merissa Forsyth from The Pretty Foundation wants to change that, and says the way we talk to our daughters has a lasting impact.
Even the most innocuous or seemingly harmless of throwaway comments can be absorbed by our children and held onto, she says.
The Pretty Foundation is a non-profit organisation that’s focusing on girls aged from 2-6. Merissa says this is the time when girls pick up life-long ideas about body confidence.
