Have you ever been in uncomfortable territory? A place that makes you feel a complete lack of ease?
For me, as an introvert, this is usually parties of all kinds. Maybe you can relate: You get an invite to a gathering with people you like and when you show up to this unfamiliar place there’s an immediate feeling of discomfort.
For me, as a dad of a pre-teen, one of the most uncomfortable territories for me is helping my daughter develop a positive body image. I just don’t know how to do it! As her dad, it’s a party I have an invitation to, but to say I don’t have a lay of the land is a MASSIVE understatement.
I understand it’s a hugely important role that I play in helping her with this, but I have no clue where to start.
If you’re like me (you know it’s important, you care about helping, but you don’t know how to help) I think you’ll find this article from our friends at Parent Cue hugely helpful. Take a look!
