Our Skinny Kids


OK, there has been a lot of talk and debate on the health concerns surrounding overweight kids. While this is indeed a legitimate problem it has taken all the attention from another physical state of being of our kids that is of equal serious implication to health… the skin and bones syndrome or chronic underweight-ness.

Now a lot of teenagers, girls to be exact, being overly exposed to the print and broadcast media have been led to believe that being skinny is the socially acceptable and only way to look to be attractive and beautiful. They see the physical stature of the runway models and the girls in movies who commands the attention of the guys, and they are always real slim.

Very rare do you see a real busty and meaty female being highlighted in a movie as being a sex goddess and sought after, no quite contrary. Busty girls are always depicted as the ones on the outside bemoaning how unpopular and ugly they are, and how they wish to be like the 90 pound diva that always has the guys tongue hanging when ever she passes. No wonder our young impressionable females get to thinking that to shed all their flesh is the gain popularity and become that desirable siren everyone rotates around and want to be friends with. So with that in mind they employ all manner of diets and programs to lose weight and keep it off, and a lot of times to the detriment of their own health and well being.
