No you can't have it!
"No, you can't have it. Do you want to get fat like Jennie" said the mother to her little daughter in the supermarket the other day.
I was in the next aisle; so I made a mad dash to see what this was all about.
Ah, the little tyrant was crying about not being allowed to buy any candy.
Hooray! A parent who actually gives a damn. Of course some would argue that calling Jennie fat was not PC. But screw that; here's a mom that quite possibly understands that obesity starts at a very young age.
Did you ever wish that your parents had given a damn?
I wish my mother had offered alternatives to chocolate donuts with grape juice and any sugary cereal I chose.
What about you? Are you a parent? An aunt? An uncle? A brother? A sister? Are you setting a good example for a young one in your life?
