The Influence of Family on Body Image
According to your textbook, body image can be defined as “what you believe or emotionally feel about your body’s shape, weight, and general appearance” (Donatelle, 2019, p. 326). Much of what we feel about ourselves may have come from our upbringing. Select two of the three articles/blogs listed below and write a reflective essay about your own body image in relation to these influences. What are things you wish your parents had said or done. If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, what do you plan to do with your family members to ensure that they develop a healthy body image?
Write at least two pages using the Report/Research Writing Guidelines.
Give specific examples of how your body image was influenced by family (or others). Clearly describe how you can raise children or grandchildren with a healthy body image.
