Childhood obesity can result in a number of psychological issues. Weight issues can be particularly difficult during the tween
years due to the unique social atmosphere this age group faces. Childhood obesity is more than a physical problem. Children
tend to be hyper-aware of how they compare to others. Many of these social comparisons hinge on superficial features, such as
clothing choice, facial attractiveness and ? yes ? weight. Therefore an obese child may feel out of place among his or her slimmer
peers. Obese children tended to be unhappy with themselves in various ways ? including socially - not just unhappy with their
appearance. In addition to making many social comparisons, children tend to fixate on how other people react to them. Obese
children are at risk of anxiety, often because of the stress of taunting. The child learns to dread being at school or participating in
activities, such as physical education, in which he seems different from other children. Unfortunately, obese children have been
found to elicit more negative peer reactions compared to average-weight children. All in all, obesity may result in a number of
psychological issues in child. Therefore, taking steps to remedy the issue through changes in nutrition and physical activity can
have important physical and psychological benefits.
