WARPED BODY IMAGE & THE PERILS OF BODY TUNING & FACE TUNING APPS
Confessions of a Modern Parent
Nadia & Mark discuss Nadia’s new Body Confidence Campaign for Loose Women and explore the increasing use of body tuning APPS amongst young women and young boys. In what ways do all these social media APPS and tuning instruments damage our self esteem? Are they all causing Mass Body Dysmorphia ? How would Mark & Nadia have fared in today’s climate? Or is the crisis around fake selfies and touched up photos the same crisis of the 70s and 80s just with a different technology? Maddie and Carlitos discuss the topic from a young woman and a young man's perspective - and Nadia and Mark ask what came first? The Body Dysmoprhia or the technology designed to conceal this Dysmorphia? Is it a storm in a tea cup ? Are these APPS actually quite harmless? Or do they actually profoundly damage the minds AND bodies of our teenage kids?!
