Adolescence marks a time of rapid and intense emotional and physical changes. Body image and re-lated self-concept emerge as significant factors associated with health and well-being during this developmental phase, as youth begin to focus more on their physical appearance.
Moms and their adolescent daughters are invited to join Julie Schneider, APNP, a Fond du Lac Regional Clinic West nurse practitioner, for a conversation about the challenges of adolescence, including body image, peer pressure, eating habits, social media and more. Mothers will learn ways to positively influence their daughter's body image and self-esteem, while daughters will learn ways to overcome this period of change and doubt, and love what they see in the mirror.
"Body Talk for Moms and Teenage Girls" is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 12 from 6 to 7 p.m. in Agnesian HealthCare's Journeys: a health resource center, 430 E. Division St., Fond du Lac. The program cost is $5 per person.
Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call Journeys: a health resource center at 926-4960, visit us at agnesian.com, or e-mail at email@example.com
