where can one buy clothes for a plus size 4 year old girl? To get clothes to fit, several inches have to be cut off and they don't look like a 4 year old.

I don't have overweight children, but my neighbor used to be very overweight as a child. She was 10 at the time. I had been away for a few months, and noticed significant weight loss when I got back. I asked her mother how she lossed it, and she told me through piano lessons. I was shocked.
She told me that the lessons gave her child discipline and self esteem. Practicing also diverted her attention from eating during the afternoon. Honestly, telling kids not to eat is like telling someone not to think of pink and purple polka dot rabbits. (That's the first thing you think of). Find a hobby for your child, or better yet an instrument. It has been proven that children do better in school, have more self esteem and discipline when they start learning an instrument.
It helps to have a great teacher and mentor also. My neighbor's piano teacher is still teaching in New York City. If anyone wants his number just email me lovelyday2005@gmail.com or you can find a caring, dedicated teacher in your area.
Good luck.

Hi. My son just turned 4 and he weighs approx 70-75 pounds. He is very happy and doesn't realize how much bigger he is than kids his own age. I know my son's weight is out of control and I know that it is my fault that he learned such bad eating habits. I decided in mid-June to try to lose weight myself hoping that getting rid of the junk and eating healthier would eventually get my son on the right track. I have lost 80 pounds so far and have about 30 more to go. But there has been no impact on my son. I tried feeding him what I was eating but he would not even try fruits or veggies. So I would eventually have to make him something else that he would eat, which I know I should not give in and do but he would cry for hours. This is so hard and I feel so bad because I know he got the bad eating habits from me but now that I'm trying to do something about it he won't even try the ... (view more)

Hi everyone, I have a 16 year old girl who is 5'7 and roughly 180lbs. She gained the bulk of her weigh over the past 6 months or so, since i started working again and she has the ability to eat at home while I'm not there. Her gaining the weight doesn't bother me as much as the way she's handled it. As much as I offer she won't buy any bigger cloths, and insists on wearing extrememly tight outfits and just lets her stomach stick out. What confuses me is that she doesn't seem to care at all. Anyone else have this trouble? How can a young girl not try to hide the fact that she became overweight? Thanks, Joan

Just wondering how other parents are going to handle Halloween treets. My thinking is to not set limits that night and then hide the stuff and hand it out, one piece at a time, and if lasts until Christmas, so be it. This is probably her last year for trick-or-treating anyway.

My daughter Lisa is 8 years old and weights 150 pounds. A friend of mine said that I'm abusing my child by letting her get so "fat". What is your opinion. My daughter is also quite often teased by other kids, as she is by far the heaviest girl in her school. But she doesn't want to loose weight, because she really loves to eat. I'm also obese and don't know how to motivate my daughter to loose weight.

Hi. I'm writing about my middle daughter, Sarah. She is a competitive swimmer and could be quite good, except for the fact that she has weight issues and is in an event (sprinting) which requires a body that is very light. As a former swimmer myself I try to stress to her the importance that she lose atleast twenty pounds, but she just shrugs it off and calls me 'old school'. She is 5'11 and 180 pounds. Her coaches and I know that she could be state champion caliber if she would just take off the weight. This frustrates me so much...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

As you may have read below, my son has a cutting problem. he is only 11. justin has the problem because he always says he has no feelings. he believes that having a bad feeling is better than none. he won't stop and his best friend is really scared.
