Should Barbie be PHAT? 

I say no.  Now as you notice there is no exclamation point because that's not a strong no, but it is my belief that people including children should aim to live a healthy lifestyle.  In the United States 66%of adults and more than 30% of children are overweight or obese.  Michelle Obama's platform is fighting obesity when past first ladies focused on our soldiers, the war on drugs, and equality. That is a clue that the effects of being obese or overweight are not just towards the individual but the American health system as a whole.

We most definitely need to speak to our children about body image at any size and there are books such as Shapesville by Andrew Mills, websites like Raising Confident Girls and a plethora of videos on U Tube to help us with these conversations.

High body mass index and body fat percentage affects our physical health, unfortunately our self-esteem, and very well could make some social or ergonomic situations uncomfortable (‘Why did I get married’ style). A plus sized Barbie would be telling our girls that it is ok to not work on your body composition and health, when not producing one makes no statement to the child; after all it's the adults who are making a fuss over this issue due to their shortcomings.

We should be raising our kids to accept people of all shapes and sizes but educate them on the benefits of living healthfully, participate in physical activities with them, and feed them in a way to promote that life.  But, in no way should we conform to this epidemic by making our toys PHAT. How about the overweight child also accepts Barbie for being who she is!

We want our young ladies to aim for Phyt, so again I say NO to Phat Barbie! What are your thoughts?

I not to mention my pals were actually taking note of the nice advice found on the website while suddenly came up with an awful suspicion I never thanked the site owner for those techniques. Most of the young boys appeared to be for that reason very interested to see all of them and have now in truth been enjoying those things. Thank you for really being quite helpful and then for choosing such important things most people are really desperate to be informed on. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.

I must express some appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this type of scenario. Right after browsing throughout the world wide web and getting thoughts which were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing minus the approaches to the difficulties you've sorted out as a result of your good site is a crucial case, as well as the ones which might have badly damaged my entire career if I had not discovered the blog. Your good training and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was crucial. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I can also now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the impressive and sensible help. I will not hesitate to endorse your web page to any person who ought to have guidance about this issue.
