Body image has a lot to do with the messages kids are receiving every day so I applaud fitsmi.com for sending the right messages to teen girls about their value, their beauty and their health.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Dr. Barbara Greenberg, co-author of Teenage as a Second Language: A Parent’s Guide to Becoming Bilingual and The Teen Doctor for Psychology Today will be a special guest on fitsmi.com Radio airing live Thursday, July 19th at 3:30 pm (ET).
Dr. Greenberg will share her thoughts on Seventeen’s recent announcement not to airbrush photos of models in their magazine, as well as why so many teens are unhappy with their bodies, and what mothers and the media can do to help girls develop healthy self-images. Linda Frankenbach, CEO and founder of fitsmi.com and fitsmiForMoms.com, is the host of the half-hour radio show.
“Positive body image is a struggle for many teens, as well as their mothers. We are thrilled that Dr. Barbara Greenberg will enlighten us on how we can help ourselves and our daughters turn it around,” said Linda Frankenbach. “At fitsmi.com we understand how important it is that teen girls learn to love themselves first because confidence is key to a healthy lifestyle.“
“Body image has a lot to do with the messages kids are receiving every day so I applaud fitsmi.com for sending the right messages to teen girls about their value, their beauty and their health,” said Dr. Barbara Greenberg. “Girls often have an unrealistic idea of how they should look which is a recipe for lifelong discontent. As parents and a society, we can help.”
fitsmi.com Radio specializes in interviewing experts, authors and celebrities on health and weight related issues for teen girls and on alternating weeks, covers topics of interest to parents of overweight children. The interview with Dr. Greenberg will become available on podcast at fitsmi.Com Radio
