From Simone, child's age 14
I didn't see my son was fat for a very long time. I'm a single mom and I work a lot, he was never teased in school about his weight and he never said anything about it either. We were going on a vacation a few weeks ago and when we got to the desk to check-in at the airport, the lady there drew me aside and pointed out that I would have to purchase an extra seat for Andrew, my son, because he was not going to fit on one. I argued it and argued it but she wouldn't give in and I gave up and bought an extra one for him. He was absolutely mortified on the plane when he couldn't get into a single seat. I had never seen him so visibly upset as in that moment. It ruined the rest of the holiday for him. Normally he's the first one in the pool, shirt off enjoying himself but he just sat wearing a t-shirt on the pool side and refused to go in. Since we've got back I've noticed he's been eating more but I really don't know how to broach the issue of his weight and get him on the scales. I'm worried for his health as he really is quite a big boy. Please, I need help for him before it's too late.
