I was watching the Today show this morning and a woman was on as a guest discussing the issues that she has faced as a mother with an obese child. I found it very intriguing that people would even consider her tactics as taboo. She is a mother who is trying to do what is best for her daughter. Not because our society sees beautiful as the runway models but because she wants her child to be healthy. I am the mother of 3 boys and 1 girl, luckily my children do not have the problem of obesity. My 12 year old son has made many comments that he needs to be on a diet, he wants to eat our lean cuisines and drink our protein shakes. Of course, I don’t let him, his body is still growing and he is in that “awkward stage” that most boys go through. My daughter who is 5 makes comments like, “mommy, can I wear make-up to school because my friends are mean to me” this is heart breaking and I want to accomodate her but, I have to tread carefully because she needs self confidence without the opinions of others. As I originally said, I am very lucky that my kids are healthy and slim but, if I were in the situation that the other mother was in, I would do the same thing. Not for the opinions of others but because my children need to be healthy. They need to live a healthy lifestyle and think about the consequenses of over indulging in food. I try to break it down for them any time that I can, we limit their sweets and try to buy things that are not sweetened with sugar but maybe a substitute or sugar free. It is our resposibility as parents to keep our children healthy and this applies to weight too. I think that every parent should do what she did. It is not wrong to have your child diet or eat more healthy. Dieting is not wrong if you do it the right way.
