Congratulations, you have already taken it! Recognizing there is a problem and seeking help is the first step… and not always an easy one. It is often far easier to deny there is a problem, wish it away, or wait for the child to “outgrow” the baby fat. You took this first step and we commend you for it. This program will help you begin to institute change where most overweight kids need it, in their diet and activity patterns. Your child needs support; few children ever lose excess weight without the guidance of a supportive parent.
