Child: Obesity: How Can We Help 2
The Topic of my paper is Addressing the Issue of Child Obesity. This is a topic that is very close to my heart as I have four children of my own and I am very conscious about keeping them active in sports and life in general. There are many challenges in life for children and obesity is something that I feel can be controlled by the parents. Obese children are always at stake of having health issues, self-esteem issues, and an over all harder social life. Children can be very cruel to one another and obese children are often picked on, ridiculed, and teased. This can be very damaging to children and effect them the rest of their lives. My plan is to show the ways that we as parents and society can help to prevent these issues in our children.
There are many programs that are available to help our children be active. Now the cost of these leagues are sometimes pricey and exceed our
individual budgets. School physical education often is the only source of activity that children get, yet is being given many limitations or even being taken
out completely due to budget cuts. My brother in law is currently a physical education teacher in high school and in my paper I will be giving facts from
him as to what the low requirements are from the school board and how it has changed in recent years. Times are tough for every form of business, but
taking sports and everyday physical education away from children can cause many unnecessary health issues in our youth. All of these items will be
discussed throughout my paper. [continues]
