Study: Most Parents Of Obese Children Think Kids Are ‘Just Right’

According to a new study, most parents of obese children don’t recognize their own child as obese because they measure him or her to peers rather than medical standards and estimate that the child is “about the right weight” even if they are significantly overweight. What do you think?

“I’m more interested in what was said by the rest of the parents of obese children.”

“These parents have it all wrong. They’re supposed to unfavorably compare their kids to peers.”

“Children need to be taught that all bodies are wrong, regardless of size.”
