My little girl is only seven, and she already hates her nose. It takes her a half hour in the morning to pick out what she wants to wear to school, and it usual ends with a cry of despair- "I hate all my clothes!"
Not a day goes by that I don't hear about so-and-so's new shoes, or new backpack. She's even embarrassed that her little personal video game thingie isn't cool enough because it's not pink like the other girls'! We don't even have a TV with channels or cable, and she is still up to date on the latest fashions and tech gadgets.
I've seen it all over the internet- parents are concerned about the media's influence on their daughters. I found a great article about rejecting the media stereotype. It talks about not only trendy material things, but even the attitude of young girls and teenagers today. I thought you'd like to share it with your daughter:
