Good Girls Don't Get Fat: How Weight Obsession Is Messing Up Our Girls And How We Can Help Them Thrive Despite It by Dr. Robyn J.A. Silverman

“If you’re wondering whether you should be the one to tell your daughter that she ‘getting fat,’ let me tell you now; DON’T. Take a good look through this book and you will see who has already beaten you to it.” Based on Dr. Robyn Silverman's groundbreaking research on plus size models at Tufts University, and filled with searingly honest young voices, Good Girls Don't Get Fat:

·      Decodes the ripple effects of actions that damage our girls and provides tools to help stop them;
·     Shines light on the positive influence of women who embrace body types of any size-- and explains how to model the right behavior; and
·     Shows how girls, whatever their size, can manage their own strengths, trust their power and accomplish amazing things.

With a reassuring yet candid voice, Dr. Robyn hammers home that girls are not worth more when they weigh less and young people are assets to be developed not deficits to be managed. Good Girls Don’t Get Fat is a must read for anyone who has daughters, works with girls, or touches the lives of young women in anyway.

Dr. Robyn Silverman is a leading expert in body image, self-esteem, and character/personal development who appears regularly on national television and radio including; The Today Show, Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, The Tyra Show, Fox News, Nightline, and more. An award-winning columnist and writer as well as a professional speaker and success coach, she believes that girls and young women are assets to be developed, not deficits to be managed.  Dr. Robyn is known to tell her audiences that "It's not the glass ceiling that's preventing us from rising but rather our own self limiting thoughts telling us we are not pretty enough, thin enough, or good enough to assume our rightful place in the world; on top!" Living in New Jersey with her family, she has been the content consultant for 17 books for middle schoolers and writes a character education/leadership curriculum called Powerful Words for after-school programs around the world. Her most recent book, Good Girls Don't Get Fat: How Weight Obsession is Messing Up Our Girls and How We Can Help Them Thrive Despite It, is based on her passion to help all girls and women reach their potential, highlight their strengths, and rally the adults, role models, and leaders in the world to tell them that they are beautiful and enough just the way they are.
