Why do most mothers and fathers have so much problems with the overindulging or obese youngsters? Probably it’s because as parents we were all trained to be nourishing, give love and take care of all the requirements of our children. Our love is generally identified by feeding. No one wants to be confronted with the fact they are not as great a parent as they should be. Remarkably, hundreds of thousands of mothers and fathers of overweight young children think being underweight is more important than overweight. 80% of the mother and father believed their children to be only “slightly overweight” or even “normal.” when they are blatantly obese.
If you imagine your son or daughter or teenager is overeating or overweight , don’t justify it as a “phase.” Chances are the issue won’t go away. Ignoring your child’s eating problems can lead to more dangerous problems in the future. Poor eating routines take time to learn and therefore are difficult and sometimes almost impossible to alter. On the other hand giving your overeating kid a diet, reducing foods or insisting that they eat different meals from other family members will only lead to much more eating in the end.
As a mother or father you might believe that talking about your overeating boys and girls and teenagers is politically inappropriate and less importance should be placed on body fat and physical appearance. You may fear talking about overeating with a girl will promote an eating problem later on in life. If you battled with your weight as a boy or girl you may possibly be far more vulnerable about the issues and do not want to utilize disparaging terms about your children, particularly when play ground bullies taunted you years in the past.
Nevertheless, excess weight gain is a significant problem. If you dismiss overeating in your child or teenager, he or she will gain pounds and suffer not only the difficulties that obese adults experience- high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes but anxiousness, depression and problems due to reduced self respect. You may have already witnessed the dreadful teasing your obese children and teenagers are uncovered to from their classmates. It’s the teasing and ridicule that your youngsters deal with that may actually be more important than their body weight.
