I saw that Spark Teens thing and it looked really good. I recommended it to a friend of mine who has been dieting unhealthily, but she said she tried it and found the way the site's set up not to her liking unfortunately... I did get her to use it to find out how many calories she really should be eating, however so maybe it will help her in that way at least. I've been trying to help give her some advice on eating healthily instead of dieting.

What a great idea! I was mortified when I found my (then) nine year old granddaughter berating herself in the mirror for not having a tiny waist like she sees in magazines and on TV. I buy a lot of Dove products specifically because I'm so impressed with their ad campaigns, featuring real women who are shaped like real women. NAYY. I just think it's important and related to the issues here at SP. I hope no one minds my saying so.

I love the idea!! You are right, there are tons on eating disorders out there. It seems like the world is shoving high fashion and "skinny" into our kids minds. I am thankful for a website that will support a kid no matter what they look like!!

Wow, that's a great idea. With the prevalence of both distorted body image and eating disorders, as well as childhood obesity, this is such a great thing to do.

Sparkpoeple has launched a new website geared toward our teens. www.sparkteens.com. This site is for teens ages 13-17. It has changed around the diet and fitness to meet what a teen would need. If you have or know any teens that would be interested, let them know! Thanks and Keep Sparking!!
