Image is everything when you re a teenage girl. At least you think it is. Every day we re bombarded with images of impossible beauty in magazines ads. It s enough to make some girls feel inadequate. In this week s Northwest Families, we introduce you to a teenager who s pushing the magazines to print realistic photos of young women. Watch the video above to see how she s encouraging girls her age to decide what beauty really is. We also examine how parents sometimes feed into our teen s poor self-esteem.

Tune in to Northwest Families Wednesday morningsduring the 10 a.m show and Thursday morningsduring the8 a.m. showon NWCN. You can also check us out on Facebook .
