A mother and her young daughter were spending an evening shopping together. The pair were looking for back-to-school clothes for the little girl, who was about eight or nine years old.
The mom was frazzled. “Nothing fits you,” she said as she pulled a pair of women’s size 12 cargo pants from the rack of clothing. She held the pants up to the girl’s waist.
“Just forget it, mom,” the girl said getting increasingly upset. “I don’t want any new clothes. All you talk about is my weight. You say I need to change my thighs and my stomach. I don’t want anything.”
