Teen Phyiscal Appearence

Girls physical appearence is so important to them! Believe me I know...  we all think we have to be perfect, in every way.  Such as, 'oh, my face is big, I have massive hips, I am really fat '. Sound familier. Most teenagers are so wrapped up in what they look like they don't think of anything else. A majority of tennis girls try to fit in by having the hottest clothing,perfect bodies ;while also trying to be cool and popular.

59% of 5-12th grade girls in one survey were dissatisfied with their body shape.

20-40% of girls begin dieting at the age of 10.

By 15, girls are twice as likely to become depressed than boys.

Among 5-12th graders, 47% said they wanted to loose weight because of magazine pictures.

The attitude of teen girls think that they do not have perfect hair,perfect bodies, or perfect clothing can wreck havoc on teen girl's self esteem. Importantly,  the question is how can we help them raise their self esteem? Some opinions from experts and stay at home mums are, "watch you own stereotypes; let daughters help fix the kitchen sink and let sons help make dinner."
