I was just watching a segment on The Doctors about schools sending report cards to parents telling them what their child's BMI is and telling the parents that their children are obese.
Would you want that? For those of us who were overweight as children, would you have wanted your school to point out the fact that you're overweight?
I think most parents and children know that they're overweight. The kids on the playground point that out daily. Why would you want your child's school to add insult to injury by putting that information on a report card?
Okay, our children are fat. That's a known fact. If the schools want to help, maybe they should start with serving healthy lunches and teaching healthy eating in the class room. Maybe they should bring back physical education?
What do y'all think?
