My neice is going to, if she doesn't already have a complex about her body. She is not overweight, and her mother makes rude comments to her. Like o she's gotten so large we had to go buy her new clothes, cause her belly doesn't fit in them anymore. What is wrong with people?

I think that there's something wrong with the mother. It isn't the child's fault if the child is getting large. Children need GUIDANCE towards good food choices. What is her mom feeding her? Is she sabatoshing a naturally higher metabolism of a child by filling her with junk, fast food, pre-packaged or ready made foods out of convenience? What is her mom doing to check the processed foods, refined sugars and excess sodium she might be feeding her daughter? If my kid was noticeably overweight, I wouldn't point it out, I would take them to a doctor and find out what was making them overweight. Is it my cooking that needs adjustment or does my child have an illness that needs to be addressed that's causing weight troubles? Either way, does she have any clue that people are looking at her like she's nuts? If you think your kid is fat, stop feeding them unhealthy foods (or take them to the doctor!).
