Yes, you read that correctly, 80%!
According to a study from Common Sense Media, and reported in The Daily Mail, 80% of young girls have been on a diet over fears about their looks.
Scary and sad isn't it? It gets worse.
One-third of boys and most girls between the ages of six to eight say they want their bodies to be thinner.
Want more? Because this is not pretty.
According to Common Sense Media, kindergarten age kids were asked to describe their ideal body size, almost a third chose a size that was smaller than their own.
I know we try to set a good example for our kids, by not swearing and sheltering them from the evils of the world, it's time to watch the way we talk about our own image.
