The “Your Story” Series

This week we are excited to be shifting our story narratives from parents to a daughter! Tershone Phillips, host of “The Right Mistake Podcast,” is joining us to share how her body image was challenged at the pivotal tween years and the protective measures that her parents took to help her maintain her confidence. We know parents can’t solve or control everything, as much as we wish we could, but we love the perspective of what we can try our best to accomplish in the home environment to raise confident kids inside and out.

Where we are raised can greatly impact our body story, as we discuss this week, due to the sub cultures that vary from community to community. We are grateful for our listeners from all over the world and, as you all listen along with us this Season and rewrite your body story, our journal prompt for you is this: how was where you were raised, where you currently live, and the sub cultures that come along with your geographic locations, contribute to your lived experience in your body?

No matter where you live, as parents it will be crucial to attempt, to our best abilities, to have our children exposed to various places and people to build kindness and awareness of diverse body sizes and shapes, races and ethnicities, religions and cultures. We are excited to hear Tershone chat today about her story, how her parents were a support to her, and give some great insight to us listeners who are parents about how we can keep our kids focused on what really matters!
