We have a weekly poll on capstonekids.com where kids can tell us how they feel about certain things. Last week, our poll question was “What do you worry most about?”
The top 3 answers:
1. Grades – 32%
2. Weight – 22%
3. Being Bullied – 21%
In a follow-up question, we asked kids if they have ever been teased for being overweight. 43% of kids responded yes, they have been teased for being overweight.
It’s tough growing up and oftentimes kids are dealing with more than we are aware of. I know there are a lot of books out there dealing with weight issues. Is there a need for additional fiction books on this subject?
