Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Kate, child's age 0

Hi parents I am just a teen but I wanted to know your opinion. See, my mom, my dad, and I are all overweight, and my entire life they (and sometimes we) have been on some diet or another, but nothing ever really worked because we couldn't stick to it. I'm frustrated because my dad in particular is very overweight and I am concerned about his health and so is my mom, but every time we try to talk to him about it he just brushes us off. I love my dad very much and I want him to be around for a long time to come. How can I get him to take care of himself? I know I can't make him do it but is there anything I can do to help?
