BYOU channels positive messages of self esteem and sprinkles them gently throughout the magazine. BYOU shares lots of great positive entertainment models and blends the stories with education, crafts and fun along with a bit of silliness to balance it all out. The ultimate goal is to empower girls to make their own decisions and to make positive choices. I love how they seek out healthy role models that teens and tweens look up to and feature them in articles. BYOU touches on real issues that catch the interest of girls like my daughter. They address those things that they want answers to like how to manage a bully or what to do with friendship issues. They also focus on staying healthy and moving your body. The whole essence of the magazine is structured around positivity but in a way that is colorful and keeps their attention.
My tween really enjoyed the issues of the magazine that we received. Each issue featured covers with teen celebrities like Kelli Berglund. Kelli shared her experiences and positive messages about how she lives her life. My daughter recognized and knew all the celebrities. I was impressed with the stories and the positive role models. The stories and tips the celebrities shared were positive and reaffirmed the ideals we teach in our own home. They all focused on education, personal achievement and following a straight path. The stories and interviews were upbeat and lighthearted...the messages came across in a friendly manner. BYOU magazine is a great resource for tween and teen girls for fun stuff too. Issues had age-appropriate crafts that my daughter loved the B Smart puzzles and quizzes. Those are always a hit...I remember loving puzzles and quizzes in my own teen magazines. It is fun to see the results!
