What are your thoughts about this? There is a woman who isn’t handing out candy to children she thinks are obese. She is instead handing out a letter for parents to read, explaining that she doesn’t think “obese” children should be trick-or-treating just because other children are.
Here is a link to the letter.

@mgol25: I think this woman should go F*** herself.

Just plain cruel. And nosey! It’s none of your business what other people’s children do or do not eat.

@Atalanta: +10000. How RUDE! And way to give the poor child receiving the letter a complex! UGH

@mgol25: I think it’s a horible idea. It’s not her place to comment or judge. How does she know the parents won’t be controlling what the kid eats? How does she know that this isn’t the one day a year they are allowed to indulge in some treats? What a sanctimonious bitch who’s likely to do more harm then good with this idea.

Way to crush some kid’s self esteem lady.

Disgusting. She’s nothing more than a bully.

People are so self-righteousness, she’s in need of a serious eye roll.

My thoughts are: SOMEONE HAS TO SAY IT. I’d be completely pissed off if my kid got this letter- but I’d also look at my kid and ask if my kid eats right, gets excercise and generally leads a relatively healthy lifestyle.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a while.

If this is true then I have no words!
I was quite the porker when I was little, it was mostly baby fat and some medications that I had to be on to live. It wasn’t because my parents didn’t care about my health!
If someone had ever given a letter like that to me when I trick or treated my mom would have flipped a shit!

OMG seriously I would smack that woman.

right. Because what could go wrong with her handing out letters letting parents know their kids are fat and shouldn’t take part in a holiday experience… no bad reactions from parents or anything…

I would ask my child which house handed it out (I would hope that a kid would remember getting a letter rather than candy!) and either egg her house, or walk to her front door and slap her in the face.
