My 13 year old was given a physical yesterday at school and told that she must have too much internal fat because she weighs too much.
My daughter is anything but fat, she is in school skirts for a 10 year old as the 13 year old ones are far too big, she can fit into her 8 year old brother trousers and he's not even chubby, and I'm not deluded thinking my fat kids are slim. My daughter is always saying, is my chin too big? Is my nose a strange shape? Are my eyes to big?
when she looks fine and now the school is telling her she's carrying too much fat when she is skinny if anything. Are not children going through their teenage years the most at risk from eating disorders, so telling her she's carrying too much fat is senseless. If they have concerns about children surely they should speak to the parents.
What's your thoughts?
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
