From movie stars being criticized for not being dramatically underweight, to male models becoming shirtless "collectibles" on bags from teen clothing stores, our teens are inundated daily with messages that tie their self-worth to a certain standard of physical beauty.

Using statistics, quotes from marketing "experts," and the Bible, this study for parents of teens asks the question: Who gets to decide what is beautiful? Useful parenting tips and questions for individual reflection or group study invite parents to encourage a more holistic view of value and image with their teens.

Sue Washburn is a certified public school teacher, a Sunday school teacher, and a freelance parenting writer from Pennsylvania. She is the parent of a teen and pre-teen.
