From Malinda, child's age 13

Hello. I have been looking for a site like this for awhile. My son Tyler who is 13 gained over 25 pounds durning quarantine, starting off at being 4’11 and 83 pounds. He went all virtual last year and was at home all day. He hadn’t been dressing up or anything, so by wearing pajamas all day it was hard to tell he had put on any weight. It was two months ago when I realized how big he had gotten. You see, during covid I did notice that he was starting to fill out his clothes, but I just figured it was growing, though he only grew an inch. Anyways, i noticed his weight two months ago when I got a new job. I was able to be at home for more of the day. I started to realize how wide his body had gotten, especially his legs. He had on a fairly old pair of clothes and they barely fit him. The shirt couldn’t fit over him and left a gap around his waist, where you could see how big his love handles had gotten. His belly shook when he walked. I was so shocked. I don’t know what to do and how to say it to him. Please help me
