Are We Perpetuating Body Image Ideals?

I am intrigued by body image and the influence of social constructs, especially on young girls. I found this article today and I think it brings up an important point: what do we emphasize when we talk to young girls? If we only ever comment on their looks, we teach them that looks are what matters the most.

It’s worth a read:

Do our girls a favor and compliment more than their looks!
