Research was needed for this!

Study: Best way to reduce childhood obesity is to be involved in your kid's life.

The Australian study examined 165 overweight children and randomly assigned them to one of three programs: an exercise program, a parent-controlled diet program, or a program combining both diet and exercise. After two years, all children experienced weight loss but the report noted that the greatest effects were achieved through inclusion of a parent-centered diet program, indicating the importance of targeting parents within treatment and the possibility of targeting them exclusively in treating obese prepubertal children.

Next we may actually be treated to research that concludes the best way for children to do well in school is if their parents get involved in their lives!
