Influence of Culture in Eating Disorders That Our Children Encounter
One of the real life problems that affect our children’s life is the culture in eating disorders and is increasing in fashion. One of the beginning stages of the disorders is having a poor body image and many people feel that the media gives us expectations, although” unrealistic", when it comes to beauty in our world, and that is why many suffer from these disorders. In this article, we'll examine the culture influence in eating disorders and the role that the media plays when it comes to disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. One of the factors in the raising of our children in recent times is the place that the television has in our households. With the culture influence in eating disorders some families watch T. V. as a means of entertainment from time to time, however we all know about families who are "always" watching television.With the the culture influence in eating disorders in the sense that the media is, in effect, playing the role of the parent to our growing children, our children are constantly seeing images of stick-thin unhealthy models, while being told that those models are "beautiful". The culture influence in eating disorders is because children are very impressionable, both via peer pressure as well as the images on T. V., the movies and magazines, accordingly eating disorders usually develop early in our children's lives. Most female models that our children see in advertisement is at a weight that is nearly twenty five percent below the ideal body weight for a person of that height and weight. When that is added to the fact that plastic surgery is often undertaken by these models, and the photos that are taken of them are often airbrushed to eliminate flaws, a standard of beauty that is given to us is one that, 'really', is unattainable to the public-at-large.
