Can You Spot The Problem?
I don't know Amy Schumer, but I would like to! She's funny and seems like a down-to-earth kind of a person. Sure she can be raunchy on occasion, but I love how she calls out the ridiculousness of celebrity and beauty.
Amy shared this pic on Instagram earlier this week, giving parents everywhere something to think on for a bit. I don't need to go on a rant about the double standard, but it did cause me to sigh. As a parent, I'm discouraged by the continual uphill battle we're on to raise a teenage daughter who is more concerned about her future than how to 'wake up pretty.' However I'm equally as sad for the message this sends to our pre-teen son about what the future young women in his life might find important.
The struggle is REAL, friends!
So please, use this picture as the opportunity for discussion with YOUR kids.
And thanks Amy!
