My huand's grand daughter I feel will have a eating problem he tells her she has a belly and her mother tells her if she doesn't stop she will be over weight and her grand mother tell he she is fat I tell them to stop or she will be throwing up in the bathroom for fear of gaining weight she has already said about being on a deit and she is ONLY 9 YEARS OLD I tel her it is ok when she turns 13 she will grow more and be thin a a rail and this weight is nothing to be concerned about, I was not over weight till I hit 30 but I dislike this being told to this 9 year old. I know they are trying to help her but telling her this I feel she doesn't need instead they should tell her WHAT TO EAT she eats apples and orabnges and all sorts of friut and yogurt and other good things we keep a box SNACK BOX that has no junk food in it but she can seem to curb it she was on concerta and this we couldn'tget her to eat she has been off it for a year and when she went off I think her mother told her the wrong thing that she would have a vervasous hunger and that is what it is she eat much but of what we have nothing really of jubk food.
The doctor said she should have instead of another helping to have salad instead which I bought salad stuff for both kids.
She has had enough in her life and I hate to see her have to hear this from them. I am possitive on the weight and I try never to tell her she has gained too much.
Word can hurt as much as if you were stuck I know it been there done that form family memebers.
