    She`s a complete and utter f*cking idiot. While she`s correct that some kids should not be eating all that candy, the problem is the year-round consumption, not the few days around Halloween. Way more importantly, if she hands out candy to a bunch of kids in a group but only that note to the one who she feels is too overweight she not only insults that child directly, making him/her feel horrible right now, she does so in front of all the friends, possibly exposing that one denied child to days/weeks/months of ridicule. I don`t know if there are any legal grounds for it but I think that she should be charged with bullying a child if she hands out even one of those awful notes to a kid.

    This was one of the rare stories that popped up on my local News` page where EVERYONE agreed. She is a hypocrite and a b*tch. If you are so concerned with kids health then she shouldn`t be giving out ANY candy.

    Seems like a valid point, letting kids get fat is lazy and irresponsible. I guess it is hard educating and leading by example every single minute of every single day but that what being a good parent takes.

    Halloween happens ONCE a year. Give the kids some damn candy and stop trying to be the health police.

    Have a feeling if the kids TP her house this year, it`ll be with USED TP.

    She has a point to be fair. I don`t agree that parents should hold them back from going out at Halloween, because let`s be honest, that`s not going to make any difference. But it might make them think about helping their child lose weight

    why cant she just not hand out candy if shes that bent about it? seriously, why go out of your way to make a defenseless kid feel like poo just to get a jab in at the parents? It just makes 0 sense to me that a person could be so mean spirited that shed go out of her way to do this to children.

    I bet at christmas she hands out letters telling them their too spoiled, part of the 1% and dont deserve a gift. I bet shes given letters to people with Downs Syndrome kids saying its their parents fault they`re "retarded". FML. I almost want to bet that shes the same woman who wrote the note complaining about the loud special ed kids in the neighborhood and that they should die....

    `Cheryl` needs to just leave her light off and not hand anything out if she is oh so concerned about kid`s health.

    I`m also curious as to how healthy she is or her kids if she has any.

    People want to act like those who try to stop obesity or promote healthier lifestyles are victimizing or attacking overweight people. But it`s not like being overweight is something like skin colour or sexual orientation, where you can`t change it. You can change your weight, so being called out for being fat shouldn`t make people get defensive, they should see it as inspiration.
    But of course they cry fowl, "how dare you disapprove of me!", because they`re such victims. Victims of their own bad habits.

    I hope that the "trick" is that her house gets burned down.

    Unless she is a doctor specializing in child nutrition and/or physical fitness, she needs to keep her mouth shut and let people parent their own kids; it gives them a chance to teach moderation in all things.

    If my daughter had gone trick-or-treating and gotten a note like this, I would track down the house and slap a civil suit of some stupid sort on her - if for no reason other to drain her resources with a lawyer.

    If you don`t want to "contribute to the problem," then shut your lights off, pull down your decorations and pretend you aren`t home. What a self-righteous, piece of $hit, no good bi-tch.

    Anyone who disagrees with this, you are entitled to your opinion, but stfu.
    If a child is overweight, they`re overweight. You don`t need a f/ucking PHD to see when a child is a fat fried chicken eating piece of s/hit! As far as I`m concerned if that child is visibly over weight, that parent is not raising their child properly, or responsibly. Yea, the kid might be a great person and all that, but you MUST take care of your body. It`s the only one you`re getting. So maybe this note will act as a little wake up call of the parent, cause I think it`s a GREAT idea.

    "So maybe this note will act as a little wake up call of the parent, cause I think it`s a GREAT idea."

    Because I`m sure they aren`t aware their kid is overweight without a stranger humiliating their kid in front of the kid`s friends. Awesome logic! Maybe the kid will feel so bad they`ll kill themselves and you won`t have to be disgusted by their presence anymore.

    broizfam: When she mentions the, "it takes a village..." part, yeah that`s from Hillary Clinton. She made it liberally political, in her note, right there.

    If you didn`t catch that part, perhaps you should brush up on some of the more notable cliches of our times. Like, "Read my lips..." or "I didn`t have sexual relations with..." or "You can keep your health plan"

    Well, since obesity in children and young adults has tripled (around 20%) in recent years, diabetes being the one of the most chronic diseases in children and young adults today, with est. 13 000 new cases annually, severely affecting the children, causing autoimmune and other diseases, permanent damage and health risks (effectively crippling and destroying lives of thousands at a young age), not to mention that diabetes treatment expenditures for the USA in 2012 reached $245 billion...

    Well, I have to side with the woman in question. All she asked for was a bit of moderation and responsibility from the parents - she wanted them to actually ration and supervise the amount of candy the kids ate. Again I see nothing wrong here.

What`s wrong here, @TheOrigin, is the complete lack of tact and manners and knowing appropriate ways of getting your point across. This is not too far away from bullying, IMHO.

    @CrakrJak,
    The fact that she quoted someone who`s liberal doesn`t mean she`s a liberal, just that she agreed with that point. There are things I agreed with Richard Nixon on. Doesn`t make me a Republican. I still think he was a criminal and should have been prosecuted. I still would never have voted for him.

    McG: you are right, except that you are completely wrong. First of all I would be preachy but our numbers are insignificant compared to yours. The percentage of child obesity in my country is around 6% compared to your 20% (diabetes in children less than 1% - not absolutely up to date but the latest I could find) and I wholeheartedly disapprove of parents that consider fast food and artificial, chem filled sweets a viable diet for their children but I can hardly protest against something that is not happening here. At least not in such a large scale as over there.

    Oh and if you are going to go ad hominem, then we can skip this jolly debate. If swearing is your idea of arguing, then we have nothing to talk about.

    @McG: Also, whine? Oh come on now, you`re full of it.

    papajon0s1: I can see how her wording could have been chosen more wisely, I`ll give you that. On the other hand, I think that child obesity and child diabetes caused by the (mal)nutrition, eating habits and meals provided by the parents border on child abuse due to the simple fact that they cause potentially irreversible, permanent and even deadly damage marking them for the rest of their life. I`d say calling out the parents that their kids are obese (obese, not just overweight) and maybe even promoting a change in that direction is the lesser of the two evils.

    Certainly not bad enough to warrant arson, battery, property damage and similar as promoted in this thread.

    You know, in my day, it was considered pretty harsh to leave a flaming bag of dog sh*t at a mean person`s front door so, the worst I`ve ever seen was TP`d tree or two.
    Escalation, I suppose...

    That`s for children 5-13 year olds) in Europe, 2002-2012. Actually pretty close to us isn`t it huh? Dosen`t mean I`m not going to shove it in peoples faces and not give their kids candy on Halloween because that`s being a preachy k unt.

    McG: I can provide links to back me up, not sure if it will be any good as they are not in English, you make that call.

    My country is not on that list, but for the sake of argument - yes I do not disagree because that means there are idiot parents supporting pooty eating habits in children on this side of the ocean as well. Sure. Does not change the fact they are idiots and the eating habits they are supporting in their children border on child abuse.

    As I understand it, she did give candy along with those notes, right? She just appealed to the parents to exert more control with accordance to common sense in the matter of the eating habits of their obese children. Maybe it`s a cultural thing, but if that happened here it would not cause such a fuss. Actually, probably none at all. So she sent a stupid note, probably meant well, ill worded. Big deal. Now put down that tar and feathers.

    CodeJockey: either that or it`s just easier to spout big threats online, but what I`m trying to say is that it`s beyond my comprehension that this actually warrants such a fuss and threats of violence. I mean, child obesity is a real problem and she obviously did not demean (at least not intentionally) the kids, so why the outrage? Is this really so outrageous for you folks? I`m honestly asking, as I just can`t relate.

    I don`t see how her stand point makes he a "liberal". Also, who gives a flying f/uck what party she stands for. Childhood obesity is a huge problem in America, so either the parents get their poo together and raise their kids appropriately, or their children don`t reach the age of 40 cause of their high blood pressure and diabetes.

    "Maybe the kid will feel so bad they`ll kill themselves and you won`t have to be disgusted by their presence anymore."

    Good! Maybe that will stop them from raising fat lazy pieces of poo also. Also save the state and country thousands of dollars from sucking up our tax dollars from their Medicare/Medicaid cause they have to take and Ambulance to the hospital three times a week to get the fat sucked out of their head and use our resources for people who NEED help from problems OUT OF THEIR CONTROL.
