I'm not sure if I would actually say the words "Uh, YOU ARE FAT!" but I would have no problem telling my children that they were gaining a little too much weight ((IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY GAINING TOO MUCH WEIGHT)) and by too much weight I mean an unhealthy weight increase not the normal weight gain for a child of that age.
Now granted, I don't want my children to think OH MY! I NEED TO GO RUN AROUND THE BLOCK A FEW TIMES BECAUSE I JUST ATE THAT CHEESEBURGER!
I do want them to be healthy and I do want them to feel good about themselves.
I have read horror stories about mothers letting their CHILDREN (yes, CHILDREN) get plastic surgery or stories about parents putting their children on super strict diets because they didn't want fat and unattractive kids (Sad, huh?)
I want my children to be just that CHILDREN!
No worries about pleasing the world with their looks....
There is a fine line between wanting your kids to be healthy and wanting your kids to be attractive enough for the world.
Ok, I better stop ranting...
SO, Would you say to your child "YOU ARE FAT!" ?
