Hello all, so last week while waiting for Dominic to finish up wrestling practice I took a walk down the hallways to help this baby along. It clearly didn’t work but on my walk I came across this picture.
This photo is in the Middle School and we all know that Middle School is already an awkward and strange time for children. There are so many changes going on with their bodies and for some communities that is when surrounding schools combined. When I was growing up I had gone to this school and there are at least 3 schools that combine for Middle school and I remember it being stressful for me. New people to meet, new friendships, and all that jazz.
To me this door bulletin board is doing more harm then it is doing good. Its basically saying that getting sweets and maybe a few to many is going to cause you to grow a instant big belly. That is setting children up to have a negative relation ship with their body and an over all poor body image.
There are so many different bulletin boards that could have been hung up instead of this one that would encourage getting more fruits and veggies or getting the body active or just a simple snowman waving to the children. The options are endless and I found those three pictures using Pinterest in a matter of 10 minutes. We wonder why so many children are developing a negative body image so young or Eating Disorders, this is way and it needs to stop ASAP.
