I was talking to a friend the other day and she over heard her 11-year old daughter tell a friend that she looked fat and wanted to lose weight so she can wear a bikini this summer.

Now her daughter is a normal young girl, and is beautiful the way she is, my friend told her that, but she is still self conscious.

If this was your daughter what would you tell her about dieting?

How many of your young children worry about their weight?  Do you children younger than 11 talk about going on a diet?
