  • fat letters sent home.. helpful or hurtful?

    Im watching raising america right now, and there is a school who has sent home fat letters to small children as young as 9




    this girl who was i believe 13 was 5'4 138 lbs(a cheerleader) .. she looked in shape.. but she got a fat letter sentt home saying she was overeight


    i dont know how i feel about this... especially to kids who are starting puberty and are not really overweight... obese is something different

    do you agree with these letters?

          well yh in general, if your overweight, i believe its better to get rid of the fat whilst your young.
          But if they're sending letters to the kids, im sure no 1 else knows right, as in their peers. So it wont be that embarassing as opposed to being bully for bein fat

                          in general over weight kids must loose weight.. even if they are young.

                              yes i agree with that, but i think the school can at least create a workout campp, incorporate healthier foo, after school activities etc ... its couldve been done nicer..


                              :/ yeah it does suck
