A Guest Post By Tiffany7:48 PM
Hiya, it's Tiffany here from nynga + the bear. I'm a fellow mitten blogger who's obviously been asked by Sara to guest post. Hijacking the blog for today, yay!
Anyway, I didn't know what I was gonna write about until earlier today--before I went out celebrating my sister's 21st birthday--when I came across this on Tumblr:
What is the point of this book? I mean really? To teach girls from a very young age that the only way to be successful is to be thin and attractive? Because that's what I'm getting from the cover.
& why Maggie? Why not Sean, Michael or Patrick?
Children shouldn't be encouraged to go on "diets". Diets aren't realistic. Diets aren't healthy. Children shouldn't be told that they need to be thin in order to be excepted. They should be encouraged to eat healthy foods. They should be encouraged to love themselves and not envy others.
Not all children who are chubby are necessarily unhealthy. Not all children who are skinny are necessarily healthy. Am I right?
WHAT ARE YOUR TAKES ON THIS? LETS DISCUSS.
