First,learn to spell. You should have told your daughter why you took her to the doctor before hand. I can't believe you hadn't noticed her weight gain. You need to be supportive of your daughter and pay more attention to her. Is she getting any kind of physical activity or is she sitting in front of the TV?

Well give her time i am sure that she was just shocked and maybe scared she will learn in time and if not then just take it gradually, and if i can be of any help
