Barbie Dolls are not good for little girls
Sometimes we think that things we see on T.V. is good. i admit that some are good, but for some reason some movies or shows are not that really good for kids under 12. We need to understand that we have to chose as viewers what to watch and what not to watch. The first blog post that I will talk about is when kids especially those kids that play with Barbie dolls. In some studies I saw that when kids play with Barbie dolls they admire how Barbie looks and when they get old they want to be like Barbie. This is the reason why some girls have low self-esteem because they can't afford to be like Barbie.
Oatcakes: Barbies and Self-esteem...
I'm learning more about self-esteem right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: Why do most girls follow what they see in T.V? As I was reading my Google Reader, this blog post caught my attention because it Barbie Dolls have perfect bodies which kids imagine while they are young. When they get old and they have a horrible body curve then their self-esteem gets lower and lower until they they don't have anymore self-esteem.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that most of the kids that have Barbie dolls can't handle not having the same body as Barbie. I don't think that kids these days don't have to follow things that they see or have because it will ruin their future life.
Feminists have criticized the Barbie doll for promoting an unrealistic body ideal for women and potentially damaging the self-image of young girls. Ruth Handler, the Barbie doll inventor, said she conceived the Barbie doll as a way to help girls imagine their future as adult women and to bolster their self-image.
I think this is a persuasive because I think that kids follow things that they are not supposed to follow. Some kids follow what the television say than what their parents are telling them. I just think that kids these a days are just stubborn.
The second thing that I will talk about is about the difference between fragile self-esteem and shallow self-esteem. I think that this is good to talk about because people need to know this stuff and they have to also know the difference between fragile and shallow self-esteem.
I'm learning more about self-esteem right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: What is the difference between fragile and shallow self-esteem? As I was reading in my Google Reader this magazine article caught my attention because i don't know the difference about fragile self-esteem and shallow self-esteem. After i read this article I found out that people with fragile self-esteem exaggerate a lot.
The quote I chose is basically saying that people with fragile self-esteem do more crazy things than people with shallow self-esteem don't do crazy things.
"There are many kinds of high self-esteem, and in this study, we found that for those in which it is fragile and shallow, it's no better than having low self-esteem," Michael Kernis, a professor of psychology, said in a prepared statement. "People with fragile self-esteem compensate for their self doubts by engaging in exaggerated tendencies to defend, protect and enhance their feelings of self-worth."
I think this is good because it tells people that if you exaggerate a lot f times, doubts a lot, then maybe you have a fragile self-esteem. That means that you have a low self-esteem.
I think that this picture is good because it will boost up the self-esteem of those people that have low self-esteem. The title is "self-esteem for sale," in my opinion you can't sell your self-esteem because if you do that then there's nothing for you to have.
