Many of parents could benefit from this little piece of advice. She wasn't degrading or insulting in the letter, just stating a fact.

In my experience, parents don't appreciate unsolicited advice about child rearing, in verbal or letter form  :laugh:

Lollies are good for you if eaten in a certain amount. A single mars bar a day won't make you fat if you do labour work. Unused energy makes you fat. If you do not use up the energy gained by eating the mars bar, then you will get fat.

She was stating her opinion. Just like she said in the letter.

Guess they weren't brave enough to include their contact details on the handout.

I think we as a "world" community should had them bag fulls of candy and stop padding all of life.  Eventually natural selection will kick back in, and we'll actually have the better genetics finally in full speed again.  Stop getting in Darwin's way at let evolution do its work.   Can't stop yourself from eating?  Lets not get in your way.   Can't stop yourself from being a bad driver?  Here's the car with no air-bags / padding.  Eventually you'll learn or die, its just better that you take yourself out instead of causing any harm to anyone else.

I half agree with this. The message she's trying to address is a good one. There is a huge problem with weight in the US, I just think she could've addressed it in a different way.

No doubt. I'd call her a flat out b**ch! Who does she think she is, some savior, or something? What do her kids look like?

 

Whether the message is "just stating facts" or not, it is not her place to do this.

Halloween is a commercial holiday by chocolate and sweet/candy companies anyway, so this makes a 100% sense. Stop feeding your children garbage and take responsibility!

why not give out fruit instead, think that would send a stronger message. She should get a neon sign... No cold calls, no trespassing, no fat kids!!!

I think it was a publicity stunt. I mean, why even say anything at all before the event? Just give the normal kids real candy and give the over weight kids something diet. No need to say a word. People will get the message.

Then don't contribute in Halloween at all, she should keep the porch light off. It's a bit hypocritical, pass out candy but at the same time basically looking down on over weight children. Even if that's not her intent, kids would still easily take it that way. 

Everyone wants to do their part to make the world a better place.

 

I agree with them. There are way too many obese people (especially in the U.S.) and the trend doesn't seem to be noticeably declining.

People, naturally, aren't built to feel, look, act like that. Might as well get at 'em while they're young...
