If you think your child is overweight

If you think your child is overweight, telling them so may be the worst thing you can do. A new study indicates that kids whose parents believe that they have a weight problem are more likely to put on more pounds. One reason may be that parents who try to limit the amount of food their children eat encourage them to rebel and eat more. A better approach is to talk to your child about what it means to be healthy, rather than focusing exclusively on weight.
