One huge part of parenting is learning how to have difficult conversations with kids.
Everyone wants their children to grow up knowing how to treat everyone with kindness and respect, but in a society that doesn’t value differences, it can be hard to set an example. For instance, it’s drilled into our heads from a very young age that “fat” is a bad word, and a bad thing to be. It’s one of the earliest insults children learn to throw at each other, and it can really affect kids’ self esteem as they get older.
One mom was shocked to hear that her daughter was using the word “fat” in a negative way, so she decided to respond. The way she did it should be an inspiration to all of us.
Allison Kimmey is a self help speaker and mother who loves plus size fashion and swimwear. She has a little girl and a little boy, and they spend a lot of time at the ocean and the pool.
When she told her kids they had to get out of the pool, Kimmey overheard her daughter calling her fat in a derogatory way. Instead of getting upset, she pulled her daughter aside and imparted some wisdom.
In addition to explaining that no one is just fat, she gave an explanation of what fat does for our bodies and that even lean and fit people have some fat.
