Now Only Dumb Children Are Overweight

Share

Some idiot did a study in Spain and found that overweight kids are not as smart nor as good at problem solving and cognitive skills as think kids.

Golly!

Maybe that’s why I was so addicted to jigsaw puzzles when I was a kid.  I was fat and dumb.

I guess that’s why I was reading on a 12th grade level in the 5th grade.  I was fat and dumb.

I did not know that Body Mass Index was now used to factor intellegence – did you?

Now a child can be emotionally abused because of their size – and it is legal.

Where does it stop, when more kids start dying from eating disorders?

  1. Ms Reidhead,
    This mind set is the same mind set that had me disagreeing with Pres. Bush over No childs left behind (that is what I call it). The assumption that everyone should/could be the same. God made us on a bell curve. Hair color, height, wt., intellect etc.The world functions best on a bell curve.
    No Childs Left Behind wants everyone to reach a certain level, then the level rises.
    The wt police wants us to weigh a certain weight. The only way those carrying extra weight will ever be OK is if there is a new virus/disease that becomes pandemic where being heavy helps save your life. Like that is going to happen….

  2. No Child Left Behind is one of the only things with which I disagreed with President Bush. It is a disaster. I have a very good friend who is a teacher who keeps me advised.
