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 Laura, child's age 8

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.
