Maternal Emotional Inheritance


Please, please, please take the time to watch the second video of How to Look Good Naked if you have ever uttered any words like, "I hate my freaking thighs."

This episode (click on the second one down) illustrates how girls develop negative body image from listening to their mother's criticize themselves.

The good news is that we, as mothers, have the power to pass positive self esteem down to our daughters by developing it in ourselves.

Easy? Maybe not. But, considering the consequences (eating disorders and self-loathing in our daughters) of passing on a negative emotional inheritance, definitely worth the effort.

P.S. I'm very sorry Lifetime put the COMMERCIALS on the recording.

Hey - I can't watch the video from the country I am in (I wonder who put that stipulation in?) but just wanted to say I love your work, Tracee!

Sorry Jeanie. Thanks for the props.
