Very interesting topic given I earlier blogged about obesity and physical activity. So important for parents to understand how to respond to their child’s concerns about physical appearance and help their self esteem. Parents need to support and lead by example. Children will follow their parents in lifestyle and food. As a family we need to encourage a healthier lifestyle for the entire family in order for our kids to be healthier. http://listentomeplease.com/listen-to-me-please-blog/mommy-i-feel-fat-do-you-know-how-to-respond-fat-is-not-a-feeling.
