To Help Your Daughter be Body-Confident, Don’t Comment on Her Weight

Findings suggest that commenting about girls’ weight can have a negative impact later in life.

New research suggests parents should not discuss weight with a daughter, even if she is at a healthy weight.

Investigators from the Cornell Food & Brand Lab found that the less a parent comments on weight to a daughter, the less likely she is to be dissatisfied with her weight as an adult.

The findings show that women who recall their parents commenting on their weight are more prone to being overweight and are less satisfied with their weight as adults.
