The worst thing you can do is enourage your child to lose weight just to stop the bullying. This only reinforces the idea in your teen that their weight is the reason their being teased.

What you can do is work with your teen to adopt healthier eating habits. If there is a health issue in your family, it can be a great bonding experience to work on the issue together. It can also be a great way to help rebuild your teens shattered self-confidence.
