to use positive reinforcement, redirection and distraction. Unfortunately, what is often remembered by
little subconscious minds are the comments that fed the “less then” identity.
Shame is still used in adulthood as a means to
“motivate” people to shape up. A little pat on someone’s bulging tummy, a snide remark at a second helping, a raised eyebrow during “weigh-ins”
are all examples of subtle shaming.
