If you have/had children, do you talk to them about having a positive body image and how the media portrays inaccurate ideals of beauty?

i don't have children but if i did i wouldn't talk to them about it. i would only talk to them if they were having problems with their body image/ developing an unhealthy body image.

No kids for me yet, but when the time comes I will definitely talk to them about those types of issues.

I don't have kids - but when I do, I'd talk to them about the ridiculousness of the media, especially in it's portrayel of beauty

Not at all, and I doubt that I ever will...

If I had kids I would probably just tell them in short not to pay any attention to the media etc, because it's al rubbish. But if they got into a body image problem I'd talk to them more seriously about it.

What the hell is an "inaccurate ideal of beauty"?

I'm with MightyRhino; what is ideal beauty then?

I mean, I guess I'd talk to them about body image but I'm not totally sure how the media fits in for me.
