I have 2 SD, one is 12 and one is 8. My 12 yr old is tall and very slim yet she refuses to wear shorts because she feels her legs are gross. She has long legs and is tan. She has beautiful legs and I try to encourage her to wear shorts especially because its been so hot. My 8 yr old thinks she is fat. She is a little girl and I don't think she is fat at all. When I talk to them about they're feelings, they say that their mom says it too. I think they are way too young to be feeling this way about their bodies. Should I be concerned or is it normal? I have talked to DH and he doesn't really know what to do. I have a good relationship with BM and we have always been able to talk about the kids and what we can do to resolve issues. I feel this is a very sensitive issue and not really sure if I should address it with her or leave it alone considering that she tells them things. Should I address it or not? DH doesn't hear the comments as much as I do because they normally only say something when its just me.
