Schools tell parents their kids are fat

It was revealed yesterday that plans are afoot for UK schools to give the parents of over weight kids a letter telling them they are fat.

I’m wondering if this has been thought through properly. I mean, first off how demoralising would that be for the kids? The teacher gives them a letter to hand to their parents that reads something like:

Dear Mr and Mrs Lucking,

It has come to our attention that your child Adam is fat. Please stop feeding him chips.

So you see? That’s not going to fill the kid with confidence. Secondly, do they not think the parents are aware their kids are fat? Where do they think all the pies are going?

Stupid bloody government idea.
