Laurie Toby Edison of Body Impolitic asked me to guest blog. I submitted Body Image: No Name Calling about how I try to teach Ainsley that the habit of self-deprecation is wrong and carries a real cost to the self-esteem.
Thanks to Laurie for the opportunity. Laurie will be sitting on the BlogHer panel about body image with me in San Francisco in July.
Please stop by and read it while I decompress from my political trip and spend extra time with my kids – they missed me.
There’s another reason to leave the kids every once in a while – you can’t beat the experience of seeing them run towards you with pure joy to see you. Who else is that happy when they see me?
