LEAVE HER ALONE!!!

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?

She looks fine to me ... about the exact same size as my daughter from the looks of the pics.  My daughter is 9-1/2 and she weighs 56 pounds and is perfectly healthy per our pediatrician

When I was younger, I was thin like that.. all the way up until about a few years ago and I was accused of being Anorexic.  People don't realize that hurts as much as someone calling you overweight.

Well its apparently a crime worse than murder to tell someone they are fat.....so why this is acceptable I don't know.
