Help Your Child and Teen To Maintain A Healthy Body Image

Free Interactive Workshop for Parents to Support their Children & Teens

Supporting your child’s development of a healthy relationship with eating and their body is critical for their mental and physical wellbeing. Parents are often unsure of when or how to bring up eating and body image concerns with their children and teens.  Please join us for an interactive workshop to learn about ways to support your child or teen as they navigate these developmental challenges. 

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Fairfield Ludlowe High School Cafeteria

  • Parents of children in late elementary, middle, and high school are encouraged to participate
