Well telling a kid a story is one thing, the real important lesson comes from how the parents act.But they are bullied and treated harshly in American culture Monique and how would I be instilling that it's ok to do this to fat people? I've give no indication of that? Sometimes I think you guys don't understand big-business: I would weave the story around a little girl that lived on a farm and had plenty of pets then she and I would go get a kitten and name her "me-nu" like I've always named our cats.
So I've planted the seed, then deflected it to something nicer. See guys . . . big-business. :)
If you want to encourage your kid to be fit, you have to be fit. Model that behavior for them.
If you want to teach your kid that discriminating against fat people is wrong, you have to have a lot of fat people in your life, so your kid sees you interacting with them and treating them like anyone else. Model that behavior, too.
Actions teach much much better than an occasional story.
