A child's concern about his or her appearance can begin as early as their elementary school years. If not addressed in a healthy way, that concern can evolve as they get older into anxiety, low self-esteem, and a preoccupation with looks, which is augmented by living in a culture full of people who are obsessed with comparing themselves to others. Fortunately, parents can be a powerful, grounding influence in their children's life and can help them develop a positive self-image that's rooted in knowing that God created them in a wonderful and unique way. On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Justin Holcomb and his wife, Lindsey, offer parents biblically based and practical guidance for helping their children cultivate that healthy self-image. Our guests also discuss the pragmatic implications of viewing others as people who are also made in God's image.
