Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Why tweens ask: 'Am I ugly'?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Young girls posting videos on YouTube asking, 'Am I pretty or ugly?'
  • Actress Elizabeth Berkley: 'Parents actually have told me they don't even want to give any dialogue to looks '

Another disturbing trend has emerged in cyberspace. Young girls are posting videos on YouTube asking, "Am I pretty or ugly?"

One video alone has more than four-million hits, generating some very nasty comments.

What  are the dangers of these children posting these questions online and the effects of the comments on them? What can parents do?  What's  motivating these young girls?

Actress Elizabeth Berkley, well-known for her role in  "Saved by the Bell", and creator of the website and  book "Ask Elizabeth", helping teens with self-esteem issues, joins Dr. Drew to discuss these issues and more.
