From Sandra, child's age 14

Does anyone else have issues getting their child to realize how overweight they are? My extremely obese daughhter has yearbook pictures being taken at school today, and plans to wear an outfit that makes her massive body look even more fat. The skirt lets you see her big, jiggly thighs, her huge belly is easily visible through the fabric, and her 'wide' rear is accentuated by the way the skirt presses against it. I asked her why she would dress so, she said that the clothes were similar to what her friends would be wearing. Her friends are quite plump themselves, I wonder if she notices how obese she is? She is substantially larger than her friends, but she doesn't seem to notice. Is anyone else in a similar predicament?
