Plenty of time to teach her to learn to love the way she looks. I know some people have plastic surgery to boost their confidence, but a 7 year old should be more worried about you sneaking veggies onto her plate than how she looks. And if she's being bullied, talk to her about it, and discuss the situation with her teachers, and the principal.

What she watches has a lot to do with the perspective children develop and even well past their teen years. This case is especially truebeith young girls. Maybe reassess what she's exposed to in terms of barbie dolls, kids shoes that are all about beauty and makeup, and regular TV shoes that push the narrative of being skinny and attractive. This is becoming a mental disorder in it's strength of control of a person's mental health and outward view.

Get her into therapy. I say that in the most respectful/ caring way. And I’m also saying that as someone who has grown up to have an eating disorder. The signs were there. I looked down at my stomach and 10 years old and thought I was fat when I clearly wasn’t. I would look down at my stomach and criticize myself. Start body positivity now and show her what good mental health is like.

Start positive comments about her to boost her self esteem as somewhere along the line that seems to have been damaged (whether at school or by the present culture of appearance etc.).

How many times have you complained about something on your body, and how much makeup do you wear? Children are more aware than you realize, she may be channeling your image issues onto her.
