A few months back, I had dinner with a Canadian women who has two daughters about 10 yrs and 8 yrs old. Throughout dinner, they gushed and gushed about Hilary Duff. They showed me magazines, told me when her birthday and all other details. They repeatedly said they adore her. They practically live their lives according to how Hilary Duff does.
I have only sons and thank God, sons don’t gush over celebrities. OK, probably if they do, they are ogling only, I hope. My #3 son do watch Lizzie McQuire and that other movie by Hilary Duff. I found her very wholesome and errr…healthy?
One of the challenges being mom is to instill values and how our kids perceive the world. Whom they look up to as role models. Are we communicating enough? Do they hear what we are teaching them and so on.
Now that Hilary Duff had drastically lost her weight, I am sure millions of bubbly, giggly pre-teens and teens are going to follow suit. Starving themselves, i.e. She has appeared on Disney channel in her skeleton frame, dark circles (as in painted with black paints) around her eyes and huge teeth.
I hope our Malaysian pre-teens and teenager girls do not have the same intense idol-worshipping style. Otherwise, where am I going to find future daughter-in-laws who have ample breasts and asses, a sign of fertility? Yam koong lor.
