Pure Curiosity: Hillary McBride – A Critical Look at Culture, Parenting and Body Image

November 29, 2017

This week’s episode of Pure Curiosity is a critical discussion about modern culture, media, parenting methods and our relationship with our bodies.  From #MeToo to #fitspo, social media can be a trigger for a wide range of issues, and coping can be challenging for many people.  Hillary offers practical tools, meaningful insight, and hope for the contemporary human and parent.  If you want a deeper understanding of how we internalize messages, unconsciously communicate with young people, and take responsibility for our impact on each other (among many other things), this podcast is for you!
