Palo Alto was blessed with a visit from Nancy Redd, the author of Body Drama, this week, and all I can say is Wow!
Nancy is such an amazing ball of energy, joy and warmth that I cannot tell you how much everyone enjoyed spending time with her - students at a local private school, staff, faculty, students at Stanford, my teenagers - everyone is still talking!
She brought some great images of normal bodies, the "fixed" bodies we see in the media, and great stories that the girls could relate to. If you have not read Body Drama and have a teen in your life - you have missed a great opportunity to undo what the media is telling girls about having to be perfect.
It is not too late - if you are not talking to your teens about body image, start now.
