I have a 12 year old. He is already 5’8 and weighs around 150 pounds. That’s adult size. Thin adult size. So why does he tell me he wants to lose weight and build muscle this year???
Is it peer pressure at school? Do other kids tell him that he’s fat or out of shape? He walks home daily from school, he can run a mile in gym class and do 50 sit ups with no problem although he cannot do a push-up for the life of him.
It worries me to no end that he thinks he’s fat. You guys have seen a picture of him, what do you think?
Now if someone made fun of his hair – go get a haircut. He says everyone makes fun of his teeth which is why he doesn’t smile in photos with his mouth open and he’s getting braces to fix the open spaces he has which is normal.
I’m at a loss here so I thought I would reach out to you guys. Please let me know your opinion!!!
