In the wake of the recent “fat letter” controversy that continues to spike the parenting community across our nation, one North Dakota mom is taking child obesity into her own hands. Tomorrow, while other parents across the country will be greeting innocent traveling trick or treaters with candy and big smiles, this mom is prepared to hand any child that she considers ‘moderately obese’, um, a fat letter? What?
She “Cheryl” (no last name given) claims that by passing out candy on Halloween, “I’m contributing to their health problems, and really their kids are everybody’s kids. It’s a whole village,” she told a local radio station, according to Valley News Live.
Can we get an ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Alright, let’s vote on it: how long before this mom gets drop-kicked in the jaw by a neighbor? Really, is she serious or is this just a media play?
Did you catch that? Just in case you can’t read it…
Happy Halloween and Happy Holidays Neighbor!
You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”? I am disappointed in “the village” of Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo.
You [sic] child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.
My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.
If this is not a media stunt, something tells me that this momma will have very few visitors tomorrow – aside from the press of course, and maybe a few neighbors wearing spiked shoes;)
