Have you ever had a parent of an overweight kid tell you your kid is too little? My neighbor has a son that is almost 5 and weighs 70 lbs and wears the same size as my 9 year old son,a 8/10. She makes remarks quite often how my son is supposedly tiny,scrawny,small. Well,according to the weight/height charts,he's perfectly fine. It makes me mad that someone whose kid obviously is fat should be remarking on the weight of another kid in a deragatory fashion. How would she feel if I kept remarking how large her kid was?
I mean no disrepect to overweight kids mind you. Most of the time its the parents' fault. It just seems like having overweight kids seems to be the norm and when a kid is actually a healthy weight,THEY'RE seen as the strange ones. I don't think people even know what a healthy kid even looks like!
