From jaime, child's age 0

hi, i am 18 and just thought i would come here and check it out. i think you guys should encourage your children to get involved in something that they enjoy. my parents are always telling me "hey wow, your gut is huge, you really need to do something about it" and i hate it, they dont really try to help me, they just put me down. im not saying that you guys do that, but i think you need to learn how to say "no, dont eat that" or "why dont you have some fruit (or another small healthy snack)" and encourage them to get involved in something. just talk to your children and make them understand that being overweight is serious and try to do something together as a family to support them, dont make them do it themselves. hope this helps, i know i wish my parents would do that for me. ~*~ jaime
