As kids become teenagers and start going through puberty, it can be hard for them to deal with all the changes their bodies are going through. It is important that teens be taught the importance of building not only strong and healthy bodies but also strong and healthy body images.
Because of society's emphasis on being thin, studies have found that many teens develop poor self-esteem when they start going through puberty. When a body is growing, weight gain can sometimes happen quickly, but some teens do not understand what is happening and panic. They may try to eat less, which will get in the way of the body's development. Bodies are race cars and need to be cared for in order to perform well. If teens treat their bodies like rental cars, though, trouble will arise. Unlike rental cars, bodies cannot be returned, and teens who try to combat a poor body image by starving themselves will disrupt their development.
These days, kids as young as seven or eight are going on diets. Yes, obesity is a real problem, and it should be addressed. Sometimes, young kids may need to change their eating habits for the sake of their overall health and quality of life. However, many kids who are perfectly healthy are trying to diet too. Kids need to be taught that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes, like fruit off a tree. No two apples look exactly the same, and neither do any two bodies.
