Woman to give ‘obese’ kids letters, not candy

‘I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight.’

WTF!!! This is such a cowardly move by this ignorant insensitive woman. The child is obese or on their way to be, in her unmedical opinion. She SHOULD speak directly with the parent. What if the child reads the letter and loses all self esteem and commits suicide, or goes on and lives this self abusive life, because they lost any self confidence they had. Has she helped the child or the family then? She can hand out a health bar or something and contact the parent directly. Better yet, get involved in organizations that help children in these situations. She doesn’t even know if it’s a medical problem, an emotional one, or the kid just eats a lot. But to just give it to a child is insensitive and irresponsible. I mean what if this lady has her own mental disorder on body image? This is a form of bullying from a grown up to someone else’s child.
