My son is 6 and is 130 lbs. I keep trying to change eating habits and activity levels, but I feel like we are not making any progress. Now Kids are calling him names.

I'm so sorry to read this, Becky. Is your son tall for his age and has he always been overweight? You are doing the right thing by stressing healthy eating habits and activity levels. I suggest also stressing to your son that the mean kids who call him names are jealous of him because he's big and they're not, and that he should be proud of himself no matter how big he is.
