Social Comparison Lessons

KEY BODY POSITIVE MESSAGES FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS

  • Teachers and parents can model size and shape acceptance and discourage social comparison.
  • The clothes we wear are part of our body image.
  • Advertising uses our insecurities in order to convince us that we need a product.
  • Teachers and parents can help by avoiding linking acceptance and appearance.
  • Gender stereotypes can contribute to narrow, sexist ideas and beliefs. Students can learn that stereotypes are not always true and limit people from reaching their potential.
  • Teachers can teach and model how to take apart society’s messages and media messages to examine their intent and perspective.
