Re: what do you allow your 8 year old to do??

I don't know what the no getting fat pacts that are being discussed entail....but childhood obesity is a huge problem! If the children are bullying overweight kids or practicing an unhealthy diet then I think there is a problem. If they just don't want to ever get fat, I don't see what the problem is??? Avoiding eating junk & being physically active is great for any age group. Public schools all teach young children about the obesity epidemic - I think its great if young children are hearing the message. Young children are way more likely to schofer in change in the years to come than their parents are.
