A new brochure, Your Child's Weight, outlines the causes of weight problems
and offers suggestions on how to deal with weight issues as a family. The
brochure, available in English and Spanish, is published by Baylor College of
Medicine in Houston.
Overweight children can face serious health problems, along with self-esteem
and social concerns.
Parents constantly influence their child's eating and exercise habits.
Experts recommend that weight control be handled as a family issue. The
brochure outlines strategies for success and provides resources to families.
