Any moms of preteen girls?
I have a 12 year old stepdaughter. I'm getting worried about her self image issues...
She plucks her eyebrows, shaves her legs, beaches her stomach hair, uses 100s of dollars in skincare, can't leave the house without makeup, goes to the gym, and doesn't eat lunch at school because she doesn't want boys seeing her eat.
Some of this is normal, but all compounded together they worry me. Especially since her mom was admitted to rehab for an eating disorder when she was younger.
Are there any ways I can help her improve her self image?
