Got Kids? Two Great Body-Image Events This Weekend

How our kids will navigate safely through the perilous seas of awful body images flooding our media is anybody’s guess. But some people have risen to the challenge of confronting the issue, and we have access to their work on Bainbridge Island this weekend.

First, this afternoon, take your 13 or older kid to the screening of America the Beautiful—The Thin Commandments, the followup to the first film, America the Beautiful. These movies offer an entertaining but in-depth look at our American body-image problem. This second film focuses on our obsession with the Body Mass Index. The movie starts at 3 p.m. (Friday, April 13) at the LGI Theater on the Bainbridge High School Campus. Tickets are $10 and benefit Bainbridge Youth Services.

Next, take your 10- to 18-year-old girl to the body image event at Woodward Middle School on Saturday, (April 14). The event runs from 9:45 a.m. until 2 p.m. It’s called Re-Defining Me, and it aims to help girls do just that through workshops given by local experts:

  • Love Your Body: Embracing your unique body and character | Bethany Anderson, MS, LMFTA, Collaborative Family Therapy
  • Interpreting Media Messages: Identifying what values or ideals the media reflect about about women and body image | Shawna Kelley, Communications, Emily Program
  • When Healthy Turns to Dangerous: Teens and eating disorders |  Jillian Worth, MD, ABFP Virginia Mason Clinic
  • Style Check: The message we send. Clothing is more than getting dressed | Chantal Kollodge, Fashion Designer
  • Healthy & Happy Eating: Buildling confidence inside and out | Jennifer Adler, MS, Certified Nutritionist, Passionate Nutrition Eating Disorders Institute
  • Eating Disorders and Stress | Dr. Anthony Hwang, PhD Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive Behavior Therapist
  • Beauty Boost: Fun demonstrations…hair, make-up, and skin care | Stellar Salon and Spa, Moda Salon, and Defining Moments

The event is sponsored by the Just Know Coalition. Bring a lunch.
