Must watch for every parent

I think this is great for every mom (and dad) to watch. It's about time that we come to love our bodies for what they can do, and love ourselves as we are. This movie touches on so many good points, and Taryn is just a lovely human being. Trigger warning for anyone who has, or with kids who have, eating disorders. This is a scene, around 20 mins in, with a severely anorexic young woman, that is really hard to watch for anyone who has gone through or has loved anyone who has gone through anorexia. That said, it's a short part of the movie and it really focuses on positive body image as a whole. Just loved this movie.
