Physical activities such as active play can improve children’s body image issues.
With cildren as young as five years old expressing concerns about the way they look, parents, schools and policy makers must work together to improve children’s body image issues, says counselling psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos.
The report also states that parents who engage their children in regular physical activity such as active play, from an early age, help them to develop self-esteem and emotional resilience. Both of these important factors in developing a better body image and making children better able to cope with external messages about body image as they grow up.
