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.

If you are an adult and not a parent, type your child's age as '0'

From Bob, child's age 6

My son is six years old. He's in first grade and weighs over 100 pounds, and he is only 4 feet tall!!!!!!!!! My wife says that he will "grow into" his weight. But it just isnt happening. His doctor is very concerned about the risks of being that large. My wife and myself are both obese and I know we don't always eat right and exercise and stuff. My son can barley walk though. He cries if you say anything about his size. And if you wont let him eat what he wants, when he wants, he throws a fit and stomps around. My wife feeds him ALL THE TIME! I dont know what to do anymore. Someone PLEASE HELP!
