Will this solve child obesity?
School report cards could become a lot more detailed. Tony McManus spoke to Melbourne University professor David Pennington about the push to put children's weight on their report cards in the hope to lower the obesity epidemic.
Well,"Chick" of Perth, I am sensitive to this "issue" because I have had an eating disorder for forty years; from extreme anorexia to what I now know is disordered eating behaviour.
Believe me, whether one is obese, underweight or even somewhere inbetween, the cruellest cut is to subject a child or adolescent to ongoing scrutiny of their weight and body image "issues", in such an overt fashion. It's a guaranteed given that all it will do is to make them hide it, or perhaps dig in their heels.

It's hard to come by educated people for this subject, but you seem like you know what you're talking about!

I think it is a good idea as some parents need a wake up call as to how overweight their children are. They could also put the children's height on as well so they can see how much they have grown over the last 6 to 12 months. It isn't singling out overweight children if all children are weighed and I think too many people are too sensitive to some issues. This could be a good thing and actually save some lives and a lot of health problems down the track.Chick of Perth Monday 10 December, 2012 - 1:49 PM
Yes, let's make the overweight children run around and be objects of derision by their peers and teachers.
While we're at it, why not belittle young anorexic girls?
Tell me, why is anorexia nervosa and bulimia acceptable, and obesity isn't, given that sometimes there may be a genetic predisposition, let alone "lifestyle" issues?Dellas Sunday 9 December, 2012 - 6:11 PM
