Your text references a study by Stice, Spangler, and Agras (2001) which demonstrated a link between girls viewing fashion magazines and an increase in symptoms of depression, body dissatisfaction, and symptoms of bulimia. This result has been replicated in various forms, and typically shows the same relationship: an increase in exposure to highly thin people leads to a increase in maladaptive symptoms. Given this robust result, answer the following questions:
1. Parents and mentors of tweens, teens, and young adults are required to decide if they will provide their child with fashion magazines or access to weight-based shows like America’s Next Top Model or The Biggest Loser. Provide one evidence based rationale for why parents/mentors should not allow their children to view these shows or magazines.
2. Contrarily, provide one evidence-based reason for why it may be okay to show tweens, teens, young adults with access to these shows or magazines. Which considerations, reasons, rules, or situations would make this okay?
