It's one thing to try and conrol the dietary habits of your own children and if they are indeed overweights, probably a good idea to limit the amount of fat, sugar and carbs they injest.
But does anyone really have the right or priviledge to invoke those dietary restrictions on other peoples children? One woman thinks so and tonight when chubby trick or treaters come knocking at her door instead of receiving a handful of sugary sweetness, they'll instead be given a letter which in so many words says, "sorry no candy, your kids's too fat". The letter obviously directed at the child's parents. The woman is using "the whole village" argument to substantiate her actions saying "these are really everybody's children" and that it's her responsibility to make sure they eat right, just like the kids own parents.
Some psychologists worry the letter will do more harm than help fearing it will hurt the childrens self esteem and relationship with their peers.
What do you think? Is the woman doing a service to the kids or should she just mind her own damn business?
