My cousin told her mom, first day of school , that there were some students who are famous Instagram "Fashionistas " with her , everyone was making a huge fuss & asking them for photos , She was really impressed & excited while talking about that subject , by the way she is only 10.
Another friend was telling me about her 8- year -old daughter`s life goal:
"I want to be Famous Mama”
"Famous doing what?”
"To look hot & post my everyday look on Instagram”
I am not a mother yet, but If I had a child, I would be concerned about what`s going on in social media. I know that it is normal to get influenced by celebs and I am fine with it, I`ve been in the same situation when I was a teenager, from magazines & TV shows, but what is happening now is completely different .The "Social Media " celebrities are ordinary people, living with us & part of our society, attending schools with us, cousins & friends.
Not only the children are excited about that magical life of fame, but also teenagers & college girls, reading their desperate comments asking one of the "Celeb, fashionista ..." or whatever they are calling themselves now , about how she is taking care of her weight , how she can get that perfect body , even though she is not exercising or following a diet ?? I will respect her more if she tell the truth about all the surgeries done to her or being done, but what she is telling them
“Sakray 7aljich “
Meaning: literally Close your mouth & stop eating!!
Unrealistic and unhealthy portrayals can lead girls to feel insecure, stressed & confused. This girl will do what the fashionista told her & she will not achieve the results of course & imagine her feelings, there are more & more examples of how some of the Social media celebs are applying bad influence.
I have nothing against them, there are many great role models that I am so proud of them.
All what I am wishing & looking for is incredibility, this is a worldwide issue, parents are facing huge obstacles & challenges.
Be real & spread a positive massage if you want to be a good role model .
