Parents. I think I have a suggestion to your problems. I think its important rather than freakig out about your childs weight, to offer support to them. My family has offered support to me and its helps me alot when trying to lose weight. Do what my parents did. Throw out all the junk food in the house, next take your child shopping and have them pick out low fat foods that they would be interested in trying. Finally, Its hard on an overweight kid to exercise by themself. Me and My family including my younger brother, have started going on an hour long bike ride together around the neighborhood. Have the entire family involved in exercise with your overweight son or daugter. My entire family, my mom my dad and my younger 14 year old brother are all skinny, but it helps that they exercise with me to keep me motivated. One more thing to throw out there. If you are a parent of an Overweight... (view more)

An update on my daughter: I have posted here several times about my daughter Lisa.
But since January things went really bad. I talked to my daughter about going to a doctor. But she refused, as she is embarrased about her body. So I didn't took her.
Since than she became bigger and bigger. She is constantly eating and is buying herself chocolate, chips and ice-crea,. She turned 10 last month and I talked her into going on the scale again. She is now 4.8 and weights in at 208 pounds. She wears clothes in plus size women 22.
She has no friends and is teased at school about her weight. Now that summer vacation is here she just sits at home, reads books and is constantly eating. I' m really concerned about her. She can only walk for about 5 minutes and than gets tired. The biggest problem seems to be her belly, as most of the weight is in her belly. It measures 63 inches. She... (view more)

My son is six years old and he weighs 75 pounds he is short in height. My concern is that he does not eat a lot of food, but yet he is still gaining. His food consists of a lot of fruit in his diet and regular foods such as eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, brocolli, chicken, spaghetti. He doesnt eat a lot of fast or junk foods. If you have any suggestions please reply to my bulletin.

Hello,does any parent have a child that has Acanthosis Nigrican? My son is obese and has this.We will be seeing a specialist in a few weeks.He has a dark ring around his neck.I thought it was just dirt but the more I scrubbed I could see that it was his skin color.I know this has something to do with obesity and was looking for another parent to talk to.

I am very worryed about my daughter. she is 15 and about 180. Last summer she was about 190 and then became annerexic. I am only so sorry i dident see all the signs before it got to the point that we had to check our child into a rehap center for treatment. She got out and gaind'd back to 180. I think now she is not eating again but i dont know how to talk to her about to issue. i want her to know that not eating is not how you lose weight. i was thinking about maybe having a talk with her boyfriend about the issu and thought he could maybe help encourage her that she is beautiful the way she is but if she dose want to lose there are better ways. any ideas or suggestions if my idea might work? thank you for the help

My daughter is a beautiful girl with a huge heart. I don't think she realizes she has a weight problem. My problem is how do I say something without hurting her feelings. She is 5'3" and weighs about 165, she smokes and is on the pill. So obviously, being overweight is a health issue for her. I am so afraid of hurting her feelings yet I don;t want to sit back and have her health in jeaopardy. Any suggestions?

I have a five year old daughter. She is 3 foot, 6 inches and weights 75 pounds. I would like to know how much a five year old should weight? Is her weight still okay or should it start to concern me?

I have a daughter who is over weight and i 4 ft tall weights 145. I'm not sure what to do first of all she don't eat much junk food. I buy fat free or lite things. No soda only water with crystal light mixed with it. She is a very picky eater.She is active to a point, we have no kids around our home for her to play with after school, so she gets bored with me. Any help please......

Hi! I'm 23 years old and I just wanted to let you parents know about what helped change my life. I struggled with weight ever since I was about 13 years old. The summer before high school I wanted to get in shape so I could try out for field hockey so I asked my parents to let me go to "FAT CAMP" At first I was nervous and kind of embarassed about the idea but it turned out to be the best decision of my life. I went to camp kingsmont in Massachussetts and lost 35 pounds my first summer, I went back every summer until I graduated high school. There are a lot of fitness/weightloss camps out there for kids. If you can afford it, it is definitly worth it to find one for your kids.
