Децата со проблеми со дебелината најчесто се насочени кон насилство од врсници. Сепак, оваа девојка покажала дека знае како да се справи со навредите.
Our limiting beliefs don't have to be the antagonist in our children's narrative…instead we are here to give them the opportunity to write a story – their story – full of wonder, limitless creativity and empowering strength. I can only do this by starring as the leading lady in my own life so that they know what a woman unaffected by fear and doubt looks like. Are you ready to be the role model they need? Just do you babes. Xoxo Allie
Кога девојките на рана возраст се наоѓаат во ситуација да бидат навредувани и омаловажувани, обично тие трчаат со своите мајки, бараат заштита.
Сепак, тоа не е случај со триесетгодишната Елисон Кимеи, која треба да се гордее со својата петгодишна ќерка, Кемпбел.
Елисон напишала порака на Instagram објаснувајќи дека нејзината ќерка е навредувана за нејзиниот физички изглед.
Тие ја нарекле дебела и мрсна, но Кемпбел одговорила: “Јас не сум масна, имам масно ткиво. Сите ние имаме масно ткиво”.
•My daughter told me that someone called her fat today.• ____________________ Cambelle: "Mama I need to tell you something" Me: "Okay baby, what's up?"" C: "Yesterday at practice my shirt came up a little bit and my tummy was showing. The girl next to me looked at me and said that my tummy was fat." >>Insert immediate mama bear reaction in my head's internal dialogue "Oh no, here we go" I thought to myself<<, but I said: "Oh really? And what did you say to her?" C: "I told her that I'm not fat, I HAVE fat. And that everybody has fat. And I told her it's okay to have fat." >>Insert happy dance parenting win<<: "Wow Cambelle! I am SO proud of you for the way you handled that situation. Fat is not a bad word, I don't think she was trying to hurt your feelings. It was so brave of you to help her understand that all people have fat, but that no one IS fat. And that it doesn't make you a bad person if you have more or less of it. Did she have anything to say?" C: "She just said 'oh, okay'" >>I couldn't believe that my 5 year old daughter had been able to handle a situation with more grace than most 30 year olds.<< C: "Remember that time I told you that you were fat?" Me: "Yes baby, I do." C: "I'm sorry I did that" Me: "Its' okay baby, the most important thing is that you learned and now you can teach others and help change the world" ________________ Children aren't born with hate inside them. They learn words from their environments and the things they see/hear, and they try them on for size. I can't prepare my daughter for all of life's situations, but I can help her to be a voice of compassion, humility and love. •And to anyone that will undoubtedly say that this is "promoting obesity," please understand that preventing childhood bullying before it can even start is not a matter of weight, but of character.• Just do you babes Xoxo Allie & Cambelle
