I'm soooooo angry and upset right now. I picked up my DD from her dads this morning before school and he informed me that they are going to control how much she eats cause she needs to loose weight and told her she was going to be going on the trampoline a lot and swimming a lot. She said I don't want to cause my legs will hurt and he said too bad.
Seriously !! All of this and he is overweight !!
She is not fat, she is 5.5yrs old, weighs 24kg and is getting tall fast. She has skinny arms, legs and a bit of a belly but who cares....she is growing!
She does not need body image issues at 5 ! She eats healthy at our house, she snacks a lot but its fruit, yoghurt, ice blocks (not ice cream), sakatas with hommus is her favorite along with tuna. She doesn't like sandwiches or toast very much.
I am so angry and do not want to send her back into that negative environment but court orders say I must.
She goes to him every 2nd weekend for 3 nights and 1 night during the week so I'm hoping that if I just keep doing positive reinforcement here it will be enough.
If I wasn't in shock from what he was saying and suffering morning sickness I would of said a lot more.
She also told me her step mum called her a ******** and idiot cause her school socks were pulled up. My poor baby girl.
Any advice greatly appreciated. Sorry its so long.
