The only reason to get offended is if it's true. Otherwise you just throw the letter out and call it good.

This is too easy a shot... If a self-important stranger sent a letter home with your children saying in their opinion your children are stupid, ugly, or stunk, the only reason you would have to become upset was if it was true. Therefore you would be agreeing with the stranger that your children were, in fact, stupid, ugly, or stank. But I somehow think you along with 99% of the normal population would take exception to that remark. Unless as you stated, it was not true and then there would be no reason to get upset, and you'd just toss the letter and call it good. But I bet you'd get upset anyway, even if your children were not stupid, ugly or stank. You would likely think to yourself 'who the hell does this person think they are & etc, how I raise my children is none of their business".

But I somehow doubt you even have children.

I hope she's thin and perfect herself. Something about casting stones comes to mind.

It is her property. If strangers come onto her private property begging for free candy without an invitation……

I got a little embarrassed last night as I made a comment to one of the adults shuttling the kids around:

Me - great costume, you look exactly like Todd Hoffman.
Him - I'm not wearing a costume.
Me - Happy Halloween

Hoffman:

Some people are easily offended. I am not one of them.

Doesn't matter if this was real or not it at least got some parents thinking about their fat kids. That's a win in my book.

Not every fat kid in America has a serious medical issue causing the weight gain. Mostly it's just crappy parenting.

If more parents dealt with the issue then The*Letís Move*campaign*and future federal programs would not be shoved down our throats.

But we all know that will not happen in our entitlement society. A society where the truth is offensive and the lie the norm.

Has nothing to do with being easily offended or not. Has to do with someone trying to impose their lifestyle on someone else. But if you lie to yourself about that, there's no truth in anything for you then.

Nonsense. She isn’t trying to “impose her lifestyle” on anyone. She was apparently trying to send a helpful message. The government actively imposes their version of lifestyle on children by mandating all sorts of things, including menus, texts, acceptable dress, acceptable language etc. Those things are imposed because they are forced. The letters can be simply ignored or thrown away.

BTW, you attempt at bullying is transparent, and rejected.

But I kinda do see her trying to look out for the kids, she's just going about it the wrong way.

I guess I can see both sides, but I'm siding a little more on the side that it's uncalled for. Just my two cents though.
Every time I see a fat child, it's the PARENT I want to slap.
