Weight and Teasing

As much as you may not want to, sometimes you have to directly address the issue of weight with your child because she comes to you. If your child mentions that she's been teased, explain how much you love her and find out how the teasing made her feel. Then work together on a plan to make her feel better while making healthy lifestyle changes.

 Get more tips on how to talk to your child when she's been teased about her weight.
