Here’s one for you.
One <cough>expert panel<cough> is suggesting that we not couch references regarding childhood obesity in sensitive terms.
The blunter terms make sense if they motivate doctors to work with more kids who need help, “but you have to be real careful about labeling or saying it in front of a child,” Belamarich said.
Well, duh, can we add to the bullying factor while we’re at it? Now they can get it in school from their peers *and* adults too! I’m sure that would add motivation and joy to any kid’s life.
