My Grandson has been overweight most of his life. I have worked with him and we had success monitoring his eating habits. For the last year he has lived with his Mom (trial basis I am his legal guardian). I almost cried when I saw him but had prepared for the worst. He has gained 50lbs in the last year. I have thought of WW since I am a member but he is 13 going on 5. Very immature, bipolar and always wants to eat. Almost like a prader willies syndrome. I believe he comforts himself with food. Lack of parents. Now 2 months later I find out he was abused by his mother's boyfriend (not my Dtr). Poor kid tells the neighbors/friends that I don't feed him and invites himself for lunch or dinner. Planning more active activities for us What would you do? I don't want to make it worse for him emotionally but I am not going to be an enabler.
