I snapped this photo at the supermarket checkout this morning. The magazine was placed about eye height for my kids. On it were two photos of a young lady – one pre weight loss and one post – flaunting her figure in a bikini.
I took only the one photo, but there were at least five other magazines featuring either weight gain / loss or impossibly flawless faces and figures on the covers.
All at the perfect height for my kids to read.
While we waited in the queue.
(Right next to the chocolate bars).
What gets embedded in kids minds when there are crappy magazines like this staring out at them from every supermarket checkout, bookstore checkout, corner store placard?
It can’t be good.
