Help! My son will turn 15 in one week. He is 6 foot 1,
And weighs 360 pounds. We have been battling his weight his entire life. Doctors, diets, sports, exercise classes, etc. HE does not care!!!!! He refuses sports or exercise. He lays around all the time because he is “tired”. Well of course he is! We have taken away all electronics. He is also failing every class, he has ADD and ODD. Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I’m so afraid he will just lay in his room and never do anything with his life!

Have you spoken to the doctors who are treating your son for ADD and ODD? Is he taking medication? Is his excessive weight related to the medication?

I get being against the weight, but isn't what you are doing a bit extreme :(?
