Body Positivity for Kids
Bridges with Daryl Lynn O'Connell and Carleigh O'Connell
Teenager Carleigh O'Connell was publicly body-shamed by another kid in her hometown, but rather than hide or lash out, she took a stand for kindness. Carleigh teamed up with her mother, Daryl Lynn O'Connell, and Praise Pals creator Cathy Ann Sarra to write a book about body positivity for kids. Learn more about Praise Pals at www.praisepals.com.
