We know that the future of our nation lies in the hands of our children. We also know that obesity is climbing at an alarming rate, especially in younger kids. This video gives perspective from an outsiders point of view looking in. He makes a lot of valid points!
This type of testing in school should not be enforced or tolerated! I understand the reasoning behind it, but it doesn’t take into account the mental state of the child. This could ruin a kid to know that he is not “normal.” This gets translated into “something’s wrong with me.” The domino affect of this in the future could be huge! You think teens have image issues now??? Wait until these little kids hit high school!! They would have to screen kids for diets pills as they entered, monitor the bathrooms to make sure people weren’t giving in to eating disorders, and video the cafeterias to make sure they were actually eating. There has got to be a better way!
