Overcome the young Nemesis
A girl who points to "Happy Meal" on a McDonald's commercial on TV said, "Mom, I want to do this for lunch. She grabbed her daughter's hand and took her to a restaurant in Kahala When I go, my mother replied, "You can eat anything. The next day, "Mommy, can I return to McDonald's for lunch today? I want a Tallopai at T.V." My daughter was staring at her mother. Surprised by her request, she smiled and took her there without words. On the same day, my daughter said, "Can mom return to McDonald's? I am hungry." The mother immediately knew what the problem is: the daughter was addicted to fast food. I hesitated, fearing her daughter's reaction and my mother ignored conscience and said "I'm OK."
Obesity is a devastating medical condition that affects all ages. If the weight is overweight and the problem is left untreated, there is a risk of becoming obese in adulthood. Obesity may prevent children from participating in normal youth activities. Obesity in childhood spreads to society as a whole even in an isolated community like Hawaii. As he is still mature, this problem is often overlooked among children.
Obesity is a mystery problem that seems to occur anytime in a person's life. Overweight is medically defined as having a body mass index (BMI) range of 25.0 and 24.9 and overweight of 25.0 to 29.9 ("weight and obesity"). Childhood obesity is an underestimated topic, parents and doctors dismiss to decide at an early time of uncertainty. Therefore, it is expected that the obesity census has not increased exponentially over the past two decades.
Obesity in childhood is expanding rapidly to all regions of the world. Hawaii, one of the most isolated areas, is greatly affected by the epidemic of obesity caused by cultural industrialization. In order for Hawaiian culture to maintain connection with other societies, we needed to transform the old lifestyle into a rapidly changing culture of modern society. In addition, Hawaii had to accept the society's recommended fast foods into their culture and have also become a major target of obesity. Every year, the number of obese children in Hawaii is increasing every year. The number of obesity in Hawaii children in 2007 was 28.5% ("Obesity overweight and obesity tendency"). After two years, it rose to about 33%. It rose to 38% (Seagull) in the next two consecutive years. In four years, the number of obese children in Hawaii increased by 33%. The overweight population of Hawaii is on an ongoing basis and seems to stop in the future.
The main factor in the rise is for parents to raise children. Parents are rarely at home, so they regularly monitor the foods they eat and encourage daily exercise. Parent participation to promote healthy behavior is an important element to avoid obesity in childhood. Encouraging children's health behavior is an important variable that focuses on proper growth and development. However, in a rapidly changing community like Hawaii, parents feel that it is difficult to make these values penetrate these children. The first step in rescuing a child from obesity is a guide to distinguish health foods. In the home, children reproduce the behavior of good and evil from adult person. Today parents rarely stay at home, so they have to follow different role models. Children are often attracted to the wrong crowd and learn negative behaviors. In order to deal with this problem, parents must demonstrate good values and behavior in front of children, like having a balanced diet and drinking a lot of water. This prevents children from eating fat foods and encourages a healthy diet. You can not keep children away from obesity only with this front. Parents need to proceed to the next step by showing support along the way.
A healthy diet can ever go without proper follow-up. A healthy diet is only the basis for that solution. Physical support is necessary to continue treatment. Parents need to promote daily exercise. By getting healthy foods, exercise helps speed recovery from obesity. Obesity is typically due to an energy surplus imbalance. Exercising makes it clear that you consume extra calories from food. By physically working, you can feel better in the public by spreading your muscles and confidence. After all, exercise helps to build up the character. In two of the three steps to prevent child's obesity, the last step comes from the step of giving advice
The last support comes from parents. The best time to contact parents is at dinner time. In this event parents should communicate with their children and listen to what is happening in the life of their children. If you experience overweight problems, give advice and indicate what to do the next day. Do not punish them or scold them for what is out of your control. But that does not mean to ignore the problem. Parents have the best support type because their experiences are rich in knowledge and knowledge is abundant. Furthermore, communicating weight problems and commitment to overcome it will create a strong relationship to solve the problem. Performing these procedures is limited to all situations, not just weight problems.
If you use these tools freely, you need to practice regularly. Childhood obesity is a serious problem involving affected children and their parents. You should not overlook this problem easily. Children and their parents must not be strangers to each other due to problems like obesity. Parents should periodically check their children and make sure there are no obstacles to prevent normal living. Children should speak with parents frequently when problems arise. Children should listen to their positive role model and give their advice. It improves our health well reflected largely in society itself.
