'Pretty' Video Sparks Concern about Teen Self-Esteem

Ad Feedback

A YouTube trend is raising concerns about young girls and self-esteem.
    
Hundreds of teenage girls have posted videos of themselves to YouTube asking people to respond to the question: "Am I pretty?"

The videos are getting big responses and not all of them are positive.
    
Concerns include protecting kids from online abuse, or worse, sexual predators.
    
But for many, the underlying question is -- what is driving young girls to seek affirmation from strangers online?

Dr. Linda Mintle, author of the book Breaking Free From a Negative Self-Image, addressed the issue on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, March 2.
