    what makes you think the parents think it's ok? As parents we need to teach our children to accept who they are. And drugs now......for real? 1st parent s of fat kids let them eat ceetos all day, now we are ok if they do drugs?

    The point we are all trying to make is that our kids are social. At times they choose not to be and its not up to any teacher to draw conclusions as to why. This is how children get labeled in the school system....by teachers like you. I can see it now...tommy can't memorize his multiplication facts...it must be cuz hes fat and momma ignores him. Next DCFS is at the door and mom is friggin carol brady! But some pompous teacher put a label on it and tommy is really in bad shape now!

    my friends are like that. one is big and her twin isnt. I dont think its her parents fault that she is overweight, but i think it might be an underlying problem such as an underactive thyroid. and like i said before i know for a fact that it wasnt my parents fault for being overweight as a child. I was just a dumb kid who snuck food & ate snacks at school when no1 was looking.
    The proof is in the pics!!! <3





    Starting over again!!!!

    oh yeah, the matter of a few months disqualifies everything i know and have learned?

    i'm sorry but i would hate to see ANY kid go down the path of shame and torture that being the "fat kid" goes along with. just because their parents think it's okay for them to be obese doesn't mean they should have to get stuck in that rut. there are parents who think it's okay to let their teenagers do drugs and have sex, but that doesn't mean that's the best thing for them. you're right though about the papers.... cus every parent has papers proving their a parent, but that doesn't make them one! good point. once again, i like how everyone totally disregards the SOCIAL aspects of it which i mentioned in the FIRST post.

    "in my opinion, they need to get some exercise or even socialize if they don't want to do anything physical."

    that's what i said in my original post, but everyone here apparently had a nerve struck because they have overweight kids that they can only see the parts they want to see. this has nothing to do with YOUR kids, get over yourselves. and if it was your kids and you would rather the teacher let them be secluded and become a social outcast then i suggest you seek help.

    Listen, no one goes around saying that wnat thier child to be fat. Of course we ant our children to be better off than we were. I have obsessed about this for 13 years now. But guess what? It happened anyways. And to be judged by the person who educates him? I'd pull my child out of that program so fast. Your right, yopu do not understand this cycyle at all. Oh and for the record.....cuz you have "papers" does not make you smarter or wiser. Plenty of educated dumb a s s e s out there!

The only time I was made to do anything was in regards to school work and rules. If I wanted to sit in the corner at recess I could and I did. I was big, had breasts way before my peers and as a result was very self concious. Some days I'd play, others I didn't. My self esteem varied day to day so it depended on how I felt that day. I was never involved in extra curricular activities until junior high when I joined sports.

    My son is 12 and weighs 156 Lbs. Since 4 he has been the biggest kid in class in both height and weight. On top of that he has a learning disability and receives resource help so this poor boy has always felt different. He is a popular kid and comes across as very secure but deep down he is not. Since 3 he has been in activities both physical and educational. At all times he is involved in at least one activity. Basketball in the winter, baseball in summer, football in summer/fall. He has also been very active in cub/boy scouting since 1st grade. He is an only child and is the center of our world. Our attention is always his. He is eating the same foods I am now and has lost 10 lbs himself and is very proud. I have raised him to try new things and if he dosent like it he will finish the season/class and not have to go back, but at least try it. I have always taught him to ignore others and to be proud of who he is. Yet, he still chooses to sit out sometimes and would rather spend his time talking to the adults than other kids.

    My point here is that your home life is not the only factor in how social or lazy that you become. Mine was very different from my sons, we still experienced the same cruelty from our peers, and both sat out instead of played. If my son does not like a teacher he will shut down.

    The main thing I want to stress is that this is not school, it's summer camp. Camp tends to be less organized and less structured. Kids stay up later in summer and tend to be tired. Some kids just plain hate camp but are forced to be there because it's the parent means of babysitting. My son was one of those kids. As a teacher, you should definately guide a child, offer them choices of activities and intereact with them along with other children together to guide them into the social network. A 6 year old will not understand your reasoning when you tell him he can't sit under the tent. But why? And I hope no teacher will ever tell them that it is because he is big and needs to move more. Are there some parents who put thier kid on the couch with tv and a bag of cheetos? Probably. But to assume that kids like this have parents like that is a terrible thing.

    Like Stacey said, some kids are just not into the sports/playground thing. My friends son would rather play with trains or draw and the kid is very smart... he has friends.....but likes to sit on the sidelines and watch.

    Dbeth....you keep referring to yourself as a teacher. Are you a certified elementary/seconday teacher or a preschool teacher/aid? I was just wondering.
    i'm still in school and i'll graduate next year (2009) with a license to teach pre-k through 3rd grade. during the school year i'm a teacher's assistant with a program for "at risk" kids, and in the summer i work with this program.

    i'm not talking about anyone's parenting skills on this board in particular as far as plopping kids in front of the t.v. with cheetos......i'm talking about american kids in GENERAL. how could i be talking about your child before you even posted? that's ridiculous. but i did just finish (tonight) writing a paper about the effects of t.v. on children under 3 where i came across a lot of research about the amount of time american kids spend watching t.v. and how that impacts their brain development. ALSO, a whole book about brain development with several chapters about how phsical activity and movement stimulate the brain. those are just the facts. so, nobody can say that physical activity has nothing to do with education unless they KNOW that to be true.........and they can't know that because it just simply isn't true. but i didn't even intend on getting all technical about it. i'm kind of shocked that so many people would say it's okay for kids to sent under a shaded tent for three hours a day and do absolutely nothing. if anybody would bother to read my original post you would see that i said if they want to build with blocks they could go do that on the playground.......not secluded under a tent or sitting at an adult's feet. it has to do with socialization which also DOES affect learning.

    Oh dbeth...get over yourself! I sont really want to soud disrespectful to you(after all this is a public forum and we are all entitiled to our own opinions)but really now....

    I work with children (in a public school setting)that have physical, mental and emotional shortcomings. I am employed to aide in the physical, academic, social and emotional wellness of children. Now, I know what the law states in Texas and I know what the mission statement is in my school district. I also am a parent and I know what the resposibilities of being a parent are. Seriously, I start each school year with the idea that I will make a difference with students in that year. What I do not do is take it upon myself to be overbearing. Now, I am certain your intensions are good, but com on now...you are sounding a bit ridivulous. Take a moment to refect on your words and the words that others have posted. Remember...you did ask for people opinions and we here at the phen forum are pretty opinionated...............!!!!!

    i really couldn't care less if anyone wants to say i'm stupid or not. if you want to disagree with me, that's all good. i'm not stupid...i have papers to prove it haha.

    i would just think considering all of us obviously had weight problems at some point in our lives we would not want the same thing for our kids. i know i don't want that for my kids. i don't get the whole parent/child cycle thing. like if you were beat as a kid you are so much more likely to beat your own kid......same thing with weight. if you were overweight as a kid......it's ok for your kid to be overweight, too? you would think it would be the EXACT opposite, but i guess not. if i'm stupid for thinking that then let me be STUPID!

    Dbeth....you keep referring to yourself as a teacher. Are you a certified elementary/seconday teacher or a preschool teacher/aid? I was just wondering.

    Let me clarify that he doesn't sit around for hours being anti-social. But he is not active on the playground... that is my point.

    Oh and I never attacked you until YOU said what you said about my 100+ lb kid

    All I said was my opinion... which I am entitled to.

    i wasn't talking about your kid or anyone else's kid that had nothing to do with the topic. i was talking about the kids who i DO know and DO know their habits. but if someone wants to use their 100+ lb kid as an example as to why it's okay for kids to sit around for hours being anti-social then i am allowed to respond and disagree with that.

    "being overweight is just a side effect of being left alone and babysat by a T.V. "

    dbetheid
    Are you fkin kidding me????? Where the hell do you get off making broad statements like that???? You are either naive or just plain stupid...You shouldnt be allowed to post threads....only people with at least half an ounce of intelligence should be able to. One more thing.....shut your mouth....everytime you open it people go from wondering if you are dumb to knowing you are.

    No I don't want the world to accomadate ME I want it to accomadate the WORLD! I am far from the only overweight person..... I am NOT whining about teachers not caring.... they aren't paid to care about my kids weight they are paid to help him get an education. You wanna help a "fat kid" get intot he medical field.

    You don't think I know it's not healthy for my kid to weight over 100 lbs? Well you are DEAD wrong.. he has seen a dietician.... AND we watch his calories. Why am I explaining this to you anyway? LAME

    As far as me stalking you? LMFAO is all I have to say... it a freakin PUBLIC FORUM BROAD!

    And since you brought up me sitting around asking my kid about my weight.. it was his TWIN... my "skinny" kid... Yeah Beth... this FAT girl has a SKINNY kid. WOW eh?

    Self righteous... know it all...PLAIN JANE needs to quit "stalking" me it sounds like.

My child is freakin Brilliant... he just DO NOT like sports. He does like to swim when we have access to a swimming pool but the poor kid has ear problems most of his toddler years up until real recent. (By the way i took him to the Dr. for the ears) AND my child also has a learning disability... Which is NOT my fault or the teachers... But I can tell you that teachers these days don't give 2 S H I T S about helping him... they have too many kids and not enough time to spend extra time on him... I actually had his RSP teacher pretty much say she gives up.. she doesn't know what is "wrong" with him. So I took him to his primary Dr. and the Dr. said he is fine and is just a tiny bit mature. He also said he'd catch up. He goes to speech therapy as well. Next year he will be in a Special Day Class. As far as putting a kid in an extracurriculam activity... is still forcing a kid to do something he or she is not interested in.

    Ppl who dwell on such issues MUST be miserable.
