So my 12 year old son all he wants to do is play video games. He has started gaining a lot of weight and I dare say not for the better. We eat really healthy here at home. None of us are overweight except for him. I tried putting him in football but he was kicked off the team for not wanting to exercise. I’m very concerned about his health more than how he looks. Any ideas. I’ve tried taking video games away. He literally just goes in his room and sleeps when I do that. Help!
A good parent enables good habits, a bad parent enables bad ones .
Stop babying him and tell him he has a weight problem.
Football is not his thing. Find something he likes. It will be tough at first
Try not to cook so much food that he eats second and third helpings .
Don’t try taking away his video games just do it. Yes there will be a fight.
He goes to room that pout .
Tough love is needed here.
