    But it may not be abuse as it says it may be due to a hormone.. As he is also much taller than the average three year old..

    The poor lad doesn't look like he can see.. :(

    "THE desperate parents of a NINE STONE three-year-old have told how they can't make the giant toddler diet because they are scared of him."

    ... Is it bad that I laughed at that sentence? :blink:

    I watched my friends baby come into the world when I was 17.. he was a tiny little baby.. wouldn't settle with mummy she breast fed.. was never full.. cried lots a good year on.. this baby was huge and everyone frowned up on him.. he was referred and tested and had some problem can't remember what.. But he had to have daily meds to suppress his appetite and stop him ballooning.. :(
    He was huge for his age.. I guess people possibly looked at her for being in he wrong for feeding him lots..But it was a problem that he had been born with.. They took the blood straight out of the top of his head cause they bruised him everywhere else with the tests.. :(

    Obviously a false warning since it's the sun's official website.

    I'll bet the poor kid has prada willie syndrome. Its a genetic abnormality that causes the hunger centre of the brain to malfunction and the person has hunger pangs so bad they are excruciatingly painful even when they have just eaten. They literally cant stop eating. Prada willie sufferers also have emotional problems and will throw tantrums to make the worst things parents of children with combined adhd and aspergers have to put up with look like a walk in the park.
    I defy any parent who's child is screaming with pain not to do anything they can to stop that pain, even if the consequences are dire.

    That could be it, but I thought children with the syndrome were below average in height?

    I don't know what's going on, but this child is now three, he was probably grossly overweight at one and two as well. They need to do something.

    Many Chinese children are completely overindulged because of the one child law. And most of them are male.

    Unless there is some sort of medical reason for a child or adult to be so overweight then there is no excuse, a child that is so overweight has the parents to blame. Many kids today are overweight with only a very,very small proportion having a medical issue. Its disgusting!!! neglect if a child was so underweight that it posed a problem as it does been overweight it would be parental abuse but overweight is so commonly put down to issues that quite frankly i think are excuses.

    i was gonna say that too

    ETA - and ALSO because of the one child law :mad:
    i agree but also there are sometimes medical reasons that can't be found or are found later in life

    and then you get to teenagers and the amounts of them on different meds which dont help wieght... etc so forth and so on...

    poor wee boy and parents having to deal with him every day,
    he may have brain damage where he is starving all the time.
    prader willie syndrome comes to mind.
    although you get people who mistake a grumpy baby for a starving one and really over feed it from day one.
    instead of just letting it grizzle a bit.
    what a wee shame for them :(

    'are you gonna get like that?'
    'no.'
    'Are you gonna get like that?'
    'no.'
    'is that a better way to go? though not flattened into a 5mm slide, obviously.'

    i think what you have to remember is.. NEVER believe what you read in the paper,espcially the sun

    if it is abuse then yes its wrong,if its medical then its different

    it is also a shame that a child is going through this whatever it turns out ... look at harvey (katie prices son , hes not abused)
     
  16. Are you eating well now?

    Yes we are.

    So why is there curry,sausages and pizza in the fridge?

    "sobbing" the poor boy is starving.....more "Sobbing"!!!

    /Facepalm*
