Will I Teach My Daughter to Hate Herself?
This is the look of a sunburned 6th grade girl who just got back from a water park field trip, at  which she wore a T-shirt over her swimsuit the whole time. When I was 12, I was convinced I was fat. I decided to order a weight loss plan from the back of a ...
