This Should Never Be What a Young Girl Thinks About Beauty
Is this what we want to teach children about beauty?
From an early age, girls (and boys) are bombarded by images of what a “beautiful” woman should look like. This video from Tim Piper was made over seven years ago, but it rings just as true today as it did then. Trying to live up to impossible standards of beauty created by advertising, magazines, television and movies can weigh very heavy on a young person’s mind, especially if these ideas have been instilled from an early age and in turn can have devastating effects on their self-confidence in the formative years and beyond. The video leaves us with this message, “talk to your daughter before the beauty industry does,” that seems like a good place to start.
