From Jill, child's age 12

I wanted input from some other parents about this. My son has always worn his pants around his belly (as opposed to under it like to let his belly hang over), but he has recently put on alot more weight and the waist size needed to go around his belly as opposed to under his belly is much larger. I told him that I think he should wear his pants lower but he said it makes him look fatter if his belly hangs over his pants. How do your boys wear their pants? Any insight?
