ABSTRACT
The article discusses the findings of a research on parents' perceptions about their child being obese or not in the U.S. The report reveals that 95% of the parents of medically overweight kids don't consider them in the obese category. It is further mentioned that societal embarrassment by labeling the child as obese and poor communication link between the parents and the medical community are some of the reasons of such misperception about the child's obesity.
