Parents, want to hear something really scary?

Monsters, vampires, skeletons, and ghosts pale in comparison to the scary world we send our daughters out into on a daily basis.



  • 81% of 10-year old girls are afraid of being fat
  • Every 7 minutes a girl is bullied
  • Up to 90% of girls struggle with self-esteem issues
  • 75% of girls with low self-esteem engage in negative activities that would shock most parents
  • 57% of music videos portray woman in ways we don’t want our daughter to see
  • 20% of tweens/teens will experience depression before they reach adulthood
  • Suicide if the third leading cause of death in teens and the fourth leading cause in tweens
  • Girls are more likely to commit suicide than boys

Oh, and by the way, only 2% of adult women think they are beautiful.

As the mom of an 11-year-old girl myself, these statistics horrify me, and I’m sure they do you, too. We cannot change the world overnight that our girls are growing up in (although we are trying really hard to do so here at BYOU Magazine!), but what we CAN do is provide our girls with as many positive-messaging resources as possible to help counteract the negativity they are being bombarded with daily. That’s why a subscription to BYOU “Be Your Own You” Magazine makes great sense!  CLICK HERE TO ORDER.
