    That's so sad!  I hope she realizes that if that's why a boy likes you, he's not the right boy.  Go mom!

    The girl is wrong: the boys will pay attention to her if she wears short skirts... they'll like her if she's likeable.

    Boys have far lower standards for bodies than girls believe --boys want to be allowed to touch, and don't care much what shape the body they're allowed to touch is.

    Body image isn't based on what other people may or may not think, but what the body's owner knows the body can do.

    It is sad. I do think girls watch their moms for cues on self esteem, especially when young.
