Media Influence Vs Teenagers/children

The Damages Of Media Influence Vs Teenagers/Children

We flick through magazines, search the Internet and watch our favourite celebrities and idols on television. They look immaculate and only rarely do you see a picture of them dressing as a normal day to day person.

You hear people telling of how beautiful or perfect someone looks in a movie, magazine or photo found online but are we missing the importance of why they look like this. These celebs have the highest connections to beauticians hair dressers and fashion. It is not normal to want to look a celebritity. It effects your own perception of your own true beauty and features.

Botox, liposuction and all other medical procedures are practiced with the large incomes they receive to look better. This is nonsense. Why change your natural looks to turn plastic and fake? Teenagers feel pressured to look like models and dress to excess. In actual fact, an average girl walking around with a ton of make-up and expensive attention seeking clothing will only be misjudged.

Girls at the age of only thirteen are found dressing to a minimal with excessive make-up to look older and attract attention. This is upsetting because at the age of thirteen you should still be enjoying your childhood while you can. Media is also a factor to blame for children growing up too fast. Learning too much quickly and between a group of friends its discussed.

Behavioural issues can be caused by programs they watch or articles they read. Teenagers need to understand the fine line between working towards a future instead of studying and copying celebrities to feel more socially accepted. Looking natural is a beauty of its own.

Influences of the media are affecting children and teenagers to a point they feel uncomfortable with their own natural beauty. Its disguisting. The more it advertises to be thin, beautiful and fashionable is confusing many of the meaning of life and creating a future. The importance of career and studying are being pushed aside to worry about their social status and looks.

Money is also an issue with this problem as young girls are worrying more about spending money on fake tans, fake nails, expensive hair cuts and stylish clothing. Where is their plans to save for a house or even their future?

I try to shake the sense into every brainwashed teenager or child I meet. The sooner they realise their looks will only get them so far.. Its your brain that will succeed you the farthest.
