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.

If you are an adult and not a parent, type your child's age as '0'

From Linda, child's age 16

Hi i was wondering if i could get any advice as it seems like all of a sudden my daughters weight has ballooned and is now out of hand she is 16 and weighs 256lbs and this has only happened recently as when she last stepped on the scales maybe 6 months ago she weighed 187lbs i dont know what to do her weight is mainly on her stomach she has been asked many times if she is pregnant but doesnt appear to be embarrassed or concerned about her weight how can i talk to her without making her feel body conscious? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
