The Doctors: Plastic Surgery Game For Kids
Just about everyone is familiar with the game “Operation.” Well, now there’s a similar app that’s getting quite a bit of attention, but for seemingly all the wrong reasons. Kids are now playing an app that simulates plastic surgery, simulating nose jobs, face lifts, and liposuction, and the apps are targeted specifically to younger children. Dr Millie Behera, an OB/GYN and fertility specialist, was concerned about the apps making it even more difficult for children to learn to love themselves just as they are. Dr Andrew Ordon argued that the games are all in good fun. Either way, it’s all the more reason to be attentive as a parent and keep a constant discussion about body image.
