From ANNETTE, child's age 6
I am the mother of a beautiful 6 year old girl who is extremely overweight. I am very concerned because she seems to be gaining 7+ pounds every few months. I have currently entered her in the Yeah! program and hope that this works and teaches the whole family how to help her in a positive light. She is only in Kindergarten and has already been teased and she is sad a lot because she tells us she doesn't want to be fat. It breaks my heart for her, I don't want her to go through school being teased because of her weight. I am not sure what to say to a 6 year old to help her understand that she is beautiful and unfortunately people are very superficial and look to the outside more than the inside. Any suggestions on how to talk to her so she can understand?
