I have an 8 year old son who is dying to play football but is too big. In order to make weight he is suppose to loose 10 pounds. As a parent, I don't know if I want to put my son on a diet and make him self-conscience about his body. He is not fat. Big yes, fat no. He comes from a long line of very tall people. My dad is 6 foot 7! So, any suggestions on what to do?
