For parents, there are a number of tense situations involving raising a sensitive issue with your children. Their weight is one of the most sensitive. So the STOP Obesity Alliance and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation have issued a conversation guide for parents and caregivers on how to approach issues, such as, understanding the BMI, cultural differences, body image, bullying, weight bias, inter-family weight differences, and, parental obesity. To access the materials, go to http://www.stopobesityalliance.org/research-and-policy/alliance-initiatives/families/
