Special Parent Event:
Young People & Body Image
28th June at Matamata Intermediate School

Dear Parent,

We live in a world saturated with some pretty skewed views around body image. There’s no doubt that young people are exposed to these views and as parents, we should be aware of how we can help to address the constant messages our children are exposed to.

That’s why Matamata Intermediate School said yes to an opportunity to secure Family Body Confidence Consultant Emma Wright to talk to the community about raising young people who feel good about their body.

This event covers teaching media strategies, creating peace around food, how to talk about weight & fat without causing shame, diversity and acceptance and the prevention of eating disorders.

This special event for parents is being hosted by Charly Draper to raise money for Perinatal Depression charity Mothers Helpers.

Watch a clip about Emma here.

“This talk was mind-blowing incredible!!!! I want every parent to hear this message!!!!” - Michelle Sokolich, Mother of Three, Videographer

“I have learned so much more in this talk than I expected. Emma has given me messages that will help our family have a much more positive view on our bodies and acceptance of ourselves.” - Kathryn Melville, Mother of two, Pediatric Dietitian

When: June 28th, 7:30pm
