Parents, I need your assistance. My little handsome boy is 7 1/2 years old and weigh 96 pounds at 54 inches. His doctor informed me yesterday because of this height, this pretty much "saves" him a little. He always implies on his stomach and gets tried easy. What should I do?

I think that when he talks about his belly, you should tell him that he's lucky to be tall and big and that if other kids make fun of him, it's because they're jealous of his size. Then, you should tell him that the main thing is for him to eat healthy and be active. Make sure that you and his father are examples for him in this. Encourage him to be active: walking, jogging, shooting hoops.

What does "he implies on his stomach" mean?
