Parents outraged after school suggests shapewear to tackle body image issues in middle school girls


(CNN) — One Mississippi middle school’s attempt at addressing girls’ body image concerns sparked outrage among parents, forcing the school to backtrack. “We, the counselors of Southaven Middle School, would like to have an opportunity to offer some healthy literature to your daughter on maintaining a positive body image,” part of the letter reads. CNN reached out to Southaven Middle School for comment. Phyllis Fagell, the author of “Middle School Matters” and a school counselor, also spoke to CNN about how to handle these concerns. “Seemingly innocuous comments like ‘Are you sure you want a second serving?’ can be brutal for a middle schooler,” Fagell told CNN.
