Gee, I feel bad. I hope he doesn't think I'm punishing him. I keep telling him it's just because I'm concerned about his health, but he said he was depressed since the diet. Since he doesn't have the interest in looking good that other kids his age have, it really has to seem like torture for him. It's not like we don't feed him. He gets three means a day and snacks. They're just regulated and healthy rather than three bags of Cheetos or one whole pizza. Any ideas on how to explain to him why this is being done? We are also making him ride his bike for at least fifteen minutes a day (it's a start, plus he has gym at school). I feel like a mean mom...lol. Help?
