Teeny Tiny Talk Between Mother & Daughter at Beauty Salon
- IWB Post
- June 8, 2015
‘Teeny Tiny’ knows EVERYTHING. And by everything, we are referring to the love teens have for beauty parlors. Therefore, a talk about body image and how paramount its role is in a teenager’s life with the owner of ‘Beauty Home’, Mrs. Neelam, and her tranquil daughter, Mehak, was inevitable. Also, we wanted to check if the daughter had the same thoughts as the notorious and intelligent kids of The Palace School.
JWB’s Avantika: What made you start a parlor in the first place?
JWB’s Avantika: Define beauty. What is a beautiful body to you?
JWB’s Avantika: Has your daughter ever been worried about her looks?
JWB’s Avantika: Why do you think you are SO worried about your looks?
JWB’s Avantika: How do you balance natural beauty with make up?
JWB’s Avantika: Your favorite junk food?
JWB’s Avantika: Are the teens of today too dependent on make up?
JWB’s Avantika: Have you ever been too conscious about your body?
Neelam: Whenever I go with my friends or her friends’ mothers’, I feel a little self-conscious. I guess its human tendency to do so. See, I am 40 years old…no 39, and feeling conscious has nothing to do with age i guess.
Neelam: You don’t tend to be but!
“Teens enter a phase in life where EVERYTHING is mesmerizing to them. They also become irresponsible during this phase.”
We all *Aww’ed* at that. And then ‘Teeny Tiny’ came to the conclusion that body image matters to teenagers a lot. Sometimes, more than it should. Teens face so many body weight issues that it becomes necessary to be vigilant and supportive at all times! Parents, are you listening?
