Do you feel when a child's weight starts to impede their being able to walk that its now a serious issue? My nephew is 3 and weighs 65 lbs. We saw him on Memorial day and the child was having a hard time walking and climbing stairs. He has no neck and his arms and legs are so fat! His mom just laughs it off and calls him her "good eater". Everyone was astounded by his size. He weighs more than my 9 yr old son! i feel so sorry for him that his parents think this is ok. He starts preschool this fall and he'll never be able to keep up with the other kids in his condition.

Maybe you should tell her about it and say its hard when you are overweight at any age. Ask her where she sees him in five years and how they are going to stop him from being picked on. You can only help him by asking her what she is going to do about it.
