A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Educational Value

Teens can learn how to live a healthy, active life, as well as how to set goals and make good choices. Teens are encouraged to make their own thoughtful decisions with solid information. Teens can learn about specific body-mind topics including drinking alcohol, violence in relationships, smoking, eating disorders, and more. Teens also practice showing respect for others as people share their different thoughts on these topics, as well as share their goals and problems with each other online. An array of physical, mental, and emotional health topics await, with lots of recommendations about how to find more.

Positive Messages

Teens need to take charge of their own health with solid facts along with goal setting, self-affirmation, and good decision-making.


Frank discussions about teen dating abuse.


The site says it will discuss sexual health topics such as STDs, sexting, teen pregnancy, sexual orientation and coming out of the closet, puberty, safer sex, birth control, condoms, menstruation, and body changes. The site says "Too often teenagers get (mis)information about sexual health from the media, without a true understanding of the reproductive health facts or about what healthy relationships are."


Nothing to buy with real money here. Teens can earn points and buy little icons for their online friends. It's unclear whether advertising will become part of the site after it moves out of Beta.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Frank discussion about the health dangers of smoking, drinking alcohol, drugs. There's an article on decriminalizing marijuana.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that BodiMojo provides teen-friendly information about a wide range of health danger zones, and allows teens to create their own profiles and contribute to the site. Teens will find frank discussions about drinking alcohol, dating violence, smoking, obesity, eating disorders, sex, drugs, and more. Some of the topics may not be as advice-driven as some parents would like. For example, the message on teen sex isn't abstinence. Instead it's "love can include sex in teenage relationships, but it definitely doesn't have to."

What's it about?

Teens initial visit to BODIMOJO will most likely when they are seeking specific information on a health topic, such as body image issues like the teen Body Mass Index, or mental or sexual health information. If they register as a site user, then they can take full advantage of all this site has to offer: Creating a profile page, setting health goals, using the health tools and quizzes, and connecting with other BodiMojo members on Facebook. The site has a related iPhone app on which teens can text or email themselves positive affirmations.


Is it any good?

BODIMOJO knows teens. Many teens are likely to tap into the vast amount of non-preachy, accurate health information here as needed because they're first introduced to it in a personal way. Teens can create their own profile page, set their own health goals, use the health tools, and connect with other BodiMojo members on Facebook. The site has a related iPhone app, and teens can text or email themselves positive affirmations: multi-platform use at its finest.

Online interaction: The ability to connect with friends and via Facebook will make this site attractive to social networking teens. Personal goals can be listed for all members to see, or kept private. Friends can send each other "virtual gifts" like little smiley icons.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how to distinguish between factual health information and myths. How do you know a source is accurate? How can you tell what's opinion and what's fact? How will your teen go about making choices about their own mental, physical, and emotional health once they know the facts?

  • You may want to read some of the articles here together -- especially those about sex, drugs, and alcohol -- to open the dialogue about your personal views on some of those issues. Listen for their views, too. There's a lot more to healthy choices than just having the facts and, believe it or not, parents' opinions often make a difference to a teen's choice.

  • Discuss how the media may impact your teen's health, especially relating to body image and sex. Read Common Sense Media's Sex and Media Tips and Sex, Gender, and Body Image.
