Transcript of Media influencing teens

How the Media Influences Teens Emma Sacchetti, Alexandra Walsh, Jenny MacInnes, and Ashley DiMeo Girls effected by Reality TV "On one hand, they can be uplifting, educational and motivational, but they also can negatively impact girls' relationships and self-esteem" "girls who regularly watched reality TV accepted — and expected — a higher level of drama, aggression and bullying in their own lives." "The problem with themes like “mean girls” becoming popular or pitting themselves against other girls is that it normalizes the behavior" "Girls who watch reality TV are more self-assured than non-viewers and are more likely to aspire to leadership. The shows also inspired conversations with their parents, and raised their awareness of social issues and causes." "Mindless Entertainment" "Not reality only entertainment" “As long as you know it's fake and not real life, you can enjoy it,” The Jersey Shore “You think about how stupid it is, and how embarrassing it is, and it makes you want to do better in school.” “Jersey Shore' is like saying, ‘This is your brain on alcohol.' It's like inspiration not to drink.” “It’s a summer full of popping and breaking bottles, heartache, "lesbionic" hook-ups, and car-crashing, wall-smashing drama.” -Diva attitudes
-What not to be like Eight young adults during the summer sharing some of the most popular vacation spots. The Biggest Loser Teens and Social Networks "A Facebook profile can be the site of a budding romance or the staging ground for conflict" The Media Driven by profit and ratings Sex sells ~Abercrombie, Over sexualization of Teens, Bratz Dolls~ Advertisements make girls belive they are objects It motivates those who are overweight and think there is nothing they can do about their life.

A girl stated “she was inspired to see her mom start exercising and eating healthier after watching ‘Biggest Loser.’” "Little Hotties" “...eighty percent of teens from the ages twelve and seventeen say that they have” experienced, took part in or saw first hand a form of cruel behavior displayed by one of their peers and only thirty percent have tried to stop the mayhem”.
