Our body is the physical part of who we are. It is the part that we and others see every day.
We are all unique
Everyone has a different body shape and size. This makes us all unique. There is no perfect body and no two bodies are exactly the same.
How we feel about our bodies
Bodies change over time
Support is available
If we have concerns about our bodies, we have a right to talk about these concerns and get support. Is there a trusted adult you can talk to, such as a parent or teacher? Doctors and nurses can also offer support when we have concerns about our bodies. Part of their job is to help people cope with changes in their lives. Childline is always here to listen to you and support you.
You can contact Childline at any time. Some other organisations which you might find helpful include:
