Coming in August: Body Kind Families will invite Australian households to participate in a range of activities that help to foster and promote a healthy body image.
Whatever your home set up, Body Kind Families will encourage body acceptance, respect and appreciation of ALL bodies.
This FREE initiative will build on Butterfly’s Body Kind Schools (formerly Love Your Body Week), Australia’s largest body positive movement for young people which runs every September.
A home environment that supports body confidence and healthy behaviours is a positive space for EVERYONE! The messages, attitudes and behaviours that surround people daily play a significant role in how a person thinks, feels and behaves when it comes to their body and appearance.
Body Kind Families will help to create opportunities to talk, challenge, explore and strengthen these attitudes and behaviours in a positive way.
Body Kind Families is being developed for ALL families in ALL homes, Australia-wide.
We understand that the way a person feels about their body is influenced and impacted by many things and that healing from a difficult relationship with our bodies can take time and also professional support.
To be ‘Body Kind’ can be difficult and some may find it easier than others.
Body Kind Families aims to support behaviours and attitudes that demonstrate body respect and appreciation. Being kind to our bodies in the way we treat and speak to it, is what matters most!
