Am I overreacting?
My five year old dd asked us over xmas break if she was fat! When we in turn asked her why she would ask such a question, she told us that one of the girls in her class told her she was fat! She is actually probably the most petite child in her class, but I am concerned about the message she has received. My DH and I explained that her looks are always secondary to who she is inside and that a person's size or looks does not determine her worth, but I hate that we live in a society that puts so much value on weight that kindergardeners are taunting each other about it. I am firmly convinced that this is where eating disorders start and I want to talk to the teacher about possibly addressing this for the whole class. The teacher would likely be receptive, but my DH says to let sleeping dogs lie. What do you all think?
