Depending on the age of your child, the social implications of obesity may just be coming to light or they may unfortunately, already be in full swing. These social implications may include bullying, teasing, anxiety, depression, eating binges or other self-destructive behaviors. Similar to most other afflictions, if left untreated, the issues can fester and become even more problematic. The earlier these issues can be recognized and dealt with, the sooner your child can adopt a healthier lifestyle. With this in mind, knowing effective obesity health and wellness camps for kids are available through Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy is reassuring.
