Hello...My 5, almost 6 yr old DD doesn't seem to like her body. If she puts on her PJs in front of me, she tries to hide herself, esp her chest, as if she has something there.
In her upcoming dance recital, she had to wear 2 dresses, both with her legs showing, no tights. She told me she doesn't want anyone to see if her legs! Last summer, she wore shorts. I don't know where any of this is coming from. I have never said anything about her body. DD has commented to me that her legs are fat. She is not fat, perhaps has a little belly, thats it.
I think she may be a 'Sprirted Kids" she can be difficult at home and is very persistant when she wants something.
She doesn't seem to feel good about her body and I have noticed that her self esteem isn't great.
Any ideas on what I can do to improve her esteem and how she feels about her body??
