I watched the movie bite size on NetFlix. It was very eye opening. You will watch a few over weight teenagers and in the end they don’t want to lose weight. Their parents are spending thousands of dollars, telling them to get off their butt, but its not working. In one instance, the father of one of the children has a stroke and has to get himself into shape. What happens? The family starts to do activities together and they ALL lose weight. Children are looking for you to lead by example. You can tell them to get off the computer and turn back to the TV where you are eating cheese curls and mountain dew. Do as I say not as I do didn’t work when you were a kid, and it doesn’t work on your kids either.
In multiple scenes you hear where kids (who let’s face it get to do a lot of stuff we didn’t get to) are doing what they need to do to get healthy because ‘They don’t want to.”
My favorite is the girl who is riding an electronic scooter.
An electronic scooter. You’re spending money on fitness camps, and your child has an ELECTRONIC scooter. Get this kid a 10 speed.
If you have children it is a must watch. Here are some link
