My son is 9 years old and he is the largest kid in his class. He keeps growing out of his clothing. Now he is a size 34 the same size as me, but Im way taller and very fit (im 38 years old). No one in our family is over weight on our side, but on his moms side several folks are over weight and i believe he could have their eating habits or slow metabolism Gene. He takes pride in food and will say he is hungry 20 min after a huge meal. His mother was had a eating disorder when she was younger, so I think she has trouble addressing the situation.
What to do? try to keep active? He is very active.
change his eating habits? He finds a way to eat more and he doesn't really eat junk.
Should I address it and tell him im worried about his health? His brother that is 5 and doesn't have a ounce of fat on his body is starting to make fun of him.
Both my self and my x wife haven't said a thing, but continue to try to get him to eat healthy and not over eat.
any input would be great!!!!!
