This Woman Had The Perfect Response To People Body-Shaming An 8-Year-Old Girl

In response to her friend’s story, she penned this beautiful missive, which is going viral on Facebook.

In it, she discusses what you should and shouldn’t say to a kid who’s dealing with weight issues — something Kara knows about firsthand.

“I don’t remember a time, growing up, when I wasn’t self-conscious about my body,” she told BuzzFeed Life. “I see my nieces, already, at 9 and 12, talking about size and weight and food and being “good” and not eating a second brownie. I guess what I’m saying is that I don’t need to do much besides open my eyes to see subtle and overt body shaming (and its bestie, food shaming) taking place.”
