CONFIDENT BODY CONFIDENT CHILD
Resources to empower parents of 2-6 year olds to raise healthy, body confident kids.
Evidence-based parenting resources to support body image
Confident Body Confident Child is a parenting program for parents of 2-6 year old children. This program helps parents to solve eating problems and fussy eating and to promote positive body image in their home.
Developed by Dr Laura Hart, Dr Stephanie Damiano, and Professor Susan Paxton, at La Trobe University, this program was developed on the basis of high quality research, and has been evaluated to show that it works.
RESEARCH AND EVIDENCE
Evaluation of Confident Body Confident Child on parent and child outcomes
A study of the children of the parents who received the CBCC Workshop and Parent Pack found that they had higher levels of body esteem and body image. The children of parents who didn't receive the program were more likely to be dissatisfied with their bodies and stigmatise others on the basis of their weight and appearance.
An evaluation of the CBCC parent workshops with 345 Australian parents found that those that received the 2-hour parent workshop and parent resource pack were still more likely to have increased knowledge about, and actually engage in parenting strategies that are more likely to promote positive body image and feeding behaviour, even 6 and 12 months after the program.
