When Dara Chadwick’s book, You’d Be So Pretty If, was first published she had her doubts about her qualifications as a so-called body image expert. “There are days when I look in the mirror and I don’t feel so great about what I see,” she confessed. “What qualifies me to tell other women how to help their daughters feel better about their bodies? But then I realized that fundamentally this is a communications issue and that is something I know a lot about.” Annie talks with Dara about how moms (and dads) influence their daughters’ body image, often in a negative direction, and what parents can do to create natural conversations with our growing girls, without a lecture.
