Let’s face it – it’s a tough world out there. And kids are exposed to it at a younger and younger age. This came as a bit of a reality check for Elicia Newcom Gregory when her oldest daughter, Molly, age 9, started asking some tough questions.
“I knew it was inevitable, but I was surprised to learn that children Molly’s age seemed to already be worried by their appearances,” Elicia said. “Even with her going to a small school and living in a home with limited television, Molly’s self esteem seemed at risk of being challenged at a much younger age than I expected.”
