Study Looks at Parents of Obese Kids

A University of Michigan study looked at the fact that many parents are not aware that their children are obese despite the fact they’re extremely overweight. It gained a great deal of attention because many looking at the issue from the outside wondered how can a parent not know an obese child has a weight problem? But this is not that unexpected. Parents are often the most objective appraisers of their children. Sometimes they are, sometimes they’re not. Whether it’s sports, academics, or appearance, parents will see what they want to see. For that reason, we have to be careful in those evaluations.

We always appreciate your comments.
