Smaller children-babies and toddlers-don’t require a full explanation because they simply won’t understand and won’t even remember the event as they get older. But, for the older kids, you need to decide if they are old enough or mature enough to handle the information. Remember, kids talk so if you want it to remain a secret, give them some other excuse for the surgery or don’t go into detail.
Take a good hard look at your beliefs about diet, exercise, and weight and your body. Do you believe that because you are a couch potato or a computer geek, your lack of exercise will cause you to become fat? We usually get what we expect to get so don’t be surprised when you look in the mirror and see your fat self. Our beliefs, thoughts and expectations firmly dictate our reality. so if you want to change your reality, first you need to change your thoughts.
