Moms Beware! Is Your Daughter Playing Miss Bimbo?

Missbimbo1_300 I’ve recently been speaking alot about online safety and being aware of what your kids are doing online.  It’s hard for moms to keep up with everything on the Internet so I’ve made it my job to keep moms has informed as possible.  The newest site to pop up is Miss Bimbo.  Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.  A 23 year-old guy created what he has labeled "the world’s first virtual fashion game."  What this "game" consists of is your daughter getting a naked avatar (for those of you who don’t know what an avatar is, it’s a cartoon character that is the virtual version of your daughter) and dressing it in tight fitting clothing an lingerie.  The object of the game is to snag a wealthy guy.  The way your avatar goes about doing this is getting breast implants, taking diet pills and "getting a nip and tuck" for a brand new face.  What’s scary is that over a million kids between the ages of 7 and 17 are already signed on for this game.  The creator calls it harmless fun that just mirrors real life.  In my opinion this guy should be arrested.  It’s hard enough as mothers to help our daughters keep a healthy body image when they see celebrities such as Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton in the media. 

Our best weapon in protecting our children is knowledge.  Girls (and boys!) need to understand that the real-life bimbos in the media end up in rehab or jail or dead.   Have a conversation with your daughter about this site and use it as a way to discuss healthy body image and the pathetic side of these "bimbos" that they will never see.
