    No Candy...Chubby Letters, Instead !??!?

    http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/nat...-irresponsible

    NORTH DAKOTA - Kids ringing this woman’s door on Halloween are more likely to feel tricked than treated.

    That’s because the North Dakota woman plans to give out letters to children she considers “moderately obese” instead of candy.

    Wow.
    I'm trying to get inside this lady's mind...why give a letter to a child? Do you really think they're going to read it? What if they're too young to read? Now they're doubly confused.

    You know....if she REALLY wanted to make a difference there are several options:
    a)give out a healthy snack (pretzels, fruit, etc.)
    b)give out a non-edible treat (play-doh?)
    c)turn your light out, and don't participate

    What a nasty woman.

    What a nasty piece of work. Did she ever consider that some kids are just roly poly till they lose their baby fat? Or that her brand of fat shaming is more likely to cause an eating disorder than anything? Ugh.

    In a town I used to live in, there was a lady who gave out stuffed animals, the kids loved it. I see no reason to give tiny tots a letter, so sad really. As if life isn't hard enough for kids the way it is.

    I agree that childhood obesity is a problem, but this is the wrong approach. Now, why would she even give out candy to children. Just turn off the lights.

    Another site with the letter.

    She mentions 'it takes a village' so obviously some progressive who has taken it upon herself to judge other people's children.

    Really? The phrase "it takes a village" is universal. I don't think politics plays a part in this at all, nor does politics need to be brought into it. She a piece of work whether she's progressive, conservative, communist, or anarchist.

    I disagree. It's a very telling phrase.

    This is so wrong! Any children that receive the letters already know, and this will further emotionally scar them, for life!

    My sister was obese, all of her life. She did not over eat, she only ate once a day, and not junk food. At age 2, in the '60's, a military doctor had her on a grapefruit and boiled egg diet! (How wrong is that?!!) She had health issues. She suffered every day not just from her size, but her emotionally well being. She knew she was large and knew she could not change it.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    Yup, eggs and toilet paper coming her way tomorrow night.

    Why can't she just hand out Play-Doh or pencils and keep her comments to herself?

    Woman Will Hand Out "Fat" Letter to Trick-or-Treaters

    Woman Plans To Hand Out Chastising Letter To Overweight Trick-Or-Treaters

    October 30, 2013 12:41 PM

    DETROIT (CBS Detroit) As obesity rates in children continue to rise, a North Dakota woman is using a Halloween trick she hopes convinces overweight kids to avoid treats.

    The woman called a local Fargo, North Dakota, radio show to reveal that she plans to hand out a letter instead of candy to trick-or-treating kids who appear to be overweight...

    This woman is throwing stones at children and calling for their parents and neighbors to set a better example to them. She might wanna work on the spelling, grammar, and punctuation of a letter that she's handing to these children who, in her opinion, are being so wronged by their parents and village.

    MOO and stuff...

    This is so not ok in my book. What if the child is ill and on medicine that makes them bloat. Some kids can be chubby until they reach a certain stage. But to each their own.
    I agree hand out something the same for every child instead of candy. Just because they get candy maybe they don't eat it all. Some families pick out a certain amount and ship the rest off to military, or charity.

    I heard the voice of the woman in question and the audio quality is not that great. It does not sound like an elderly woman. Sounds like between mid 30s to 50s. The voice sounds somewhat condescending and whiny.
