I am so tired of people telling my DD she needs to eat, she needs to put some meat on her bones, she needs to grow, she's too skinny. I'm seriously sick of it. She is starting to feel bad about herself, even starting to eat when she is full in hopes to gain weight. She is 9, it is not ok for people to treat her this way & this includes adults!
I went through the same crap as a kid, I use to wish to gain weight so people would leave me alone. I did not like how I looked, I thought something was wrong w/me. I don't want my child to think like that. I tell her all the time she is beautiful & to be happy w/who she is & not take her skinniness for granted bc one day she will have to work to lose a belly like her mama! lol
I don't understand, it isn't ok to go around telling people who are overweight "hey lose weight, hey you should eat less, hey you're too fat." If it isn't ok to say that to those that overweight what makes so many think it is ok to say such things to a person that is skinny?
