Parents, if your child is being bullied because of his or her weight, there are a few things you can do to make the situation better.
Bullies usually pick on kids with low self-esteem. It is your job to help your child gain more self-esteem. Find things that your child does well and give honest and sincere positive reinforcement.
Next, help your child lose weight. Childhood obesity has escalated in recent years. Now overweight children are suffering with health issues that used to be designated to adults. They often have symptoms of Type II Diabetes and hypertension.
So for the sake of their health and for the sake of their happiness, help them drop some pounds. One of the most successful ways to do this is to lose weight yourself. As difficult as it may be to think about, your loss of weight will trigger weight loss in your children. Look at the statistics. You play a huge role.
