Amber Castaneda's comment, August 17, 2015 2:35 AM
I thought this was a very interesting article. I looked through all the pictures and as I guessed most of them they photo- shopped her to be thin with blonde hair. Which is something that I find common here in America, I feel that this is what most women find beautiful. I say that because they are the ones dying their hair blonde, and doing crazy gym workouts to stay thin (or becoming anorexic because they think they are overweight. And by overweight I mean not Victoria Secret model skinny) which is an unrealistic type of skinny. Another thing I found interesting is that they actually changed her articles of clothes and her shoes that she was wearing. Only a few counties left her a little bit bigger than average and had darker hair. I do think beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I believe that every woman is beautiful in her own way and if her personality if genuine then that makes her beautiful inside and out.

The signs that an abused child might later commit crimes might not be obvious—that boisterous playground behavior from a third-grade boy, for example, or the 10-year-old girl who seems a little anxious or withdrawn.
