Carrie Bickmore has voiced her distress and feeling of hopelessness at raising her two-year-old daughter Evie to have a healthy body image.
Bickmore alluded to her own doubts when it came to body image despite growing up with positive role models.
Listen: You don’t need to love your body. Instead, here’s the argument for being “body neutral”.
“When I think about growing up, I didn’t grow up in a family that focused on body image, weight, or anything,” the 36-year-old said.
“Yet I still have days, hours, moments, where I look in the mirror and know how I think and feel about myself – let alone my daughter, who’s growing up in this world.
“I actually feel… What is that world going to – how are they going to feel about themselves?”
Bickmore said she felt that rather than getting better, the problem was only getting worse.
