I have a friend who filmed his daughter throwing a fit. She’s about 6 or 7 years old. Fits are common. But here’s the difference between this fit and others.
He lets her help photoshop pictures sometimes but this time, he didn’t take away the red eye in a photo of her.
She won’t even let him point the camera in her face and covers her eyes, SCREAMING. She believes that because she can’t be fixed on the computer, she is no longer beautiful.
My friend posted on Facebook about the incident: “What kind of monster did I create? No more letting her help with photoshop. She is getting a little to worried about her image.”
I agree. He’s a good dad who knows what he’s looking at now. Media literacy wins this battle and I think he’ll be more careful about what she’s exposed to in the future.
