Common Sense Media

“Children, Teens, Media and Body Image” is a new research report from Common Sense Media that presents the role of media in the development of children’s and teens’ body image. The report assembles existing research to offer a big-picture perspective on media’s influence on how kids and teens think, feel, and act about their bodies and appearance. It offers insights into just how early kids’ body image starts to form and how children are affected by their parents’ attitudes about their own shapes and sizes.
