Halloween Letter sent to parents
I just saw this on another board of mine and I am speechless. This "concerned" lady is passing out sealed envelopes with a letter inside to parents of "obese" children when they TOT at her door. Oh, along with the candy, so she's not considered "mean". Can you BELIEVE this?!?!!!! I would be L.I.V.I.D if my kid received this! Wow.

What an evil Halloween witch!! :sad:

Babsbabs 10-29-2013 05:32 PM

Wow, it's not just the scale that is evil. If I got that note as a kid I would have had to eat the whole bag of candy to feel better.:cry:

Carly 10-29-2013 05:46 PM

Wow... I don't even know what to say...

Wow. That is wrong on so many levels.....

Flutter 10-29-2013 07:39 PM

Seriously, I am still steaming over this. What message does this send a child? (Because, really, the kid isn't going to rip the envelope open right away and read it?!?) way to traumatized a neighborhood full of kids for a lifetime, crazy lady. She called into a radio station saying she hoped other "concerned" neighbors would also send letters in treat bags and I thought she sounded giddy.

I hope her house is mobbed by angry parents BEFORE she can do this on Halloween!

:down: Her heartless attempt at having a heart to help "raise the village" is way out of line. Reminds me of something I read about someones neighbor writing a horrible letter about their child with autism. I swear, I was furious for days after reading about it.

Sirtain 10-29-2013 07:45 PM

Wow. Who would do this? Just turn out your light! No need to be such a meanie.

Flutter 10-29-2013 07:50 PM

AND!!!!! As if ONE kid holiday is the cause of any ones "obesity"?!?

I need to go to bed. I am just so angry thinking about this. I hope no one goes to her house so she can't upset a single child.

LoCarbGal 10-29-2013 11:17 PM

Oh! That is just infuriating. I can't even begin to name all the ways this makes me mad. Some people just have to be self-righteous and condescending about everything. I'm sure there are some things she does in her life that others could disagree with. Maybe she should get some letters about those things. Hmpf!

zipp2play 10-30-2013 06:43 AM

Ok, my response to her would be SHUT YOUR LIGHT OFF! Plain and simple. If you are going to act like that, please please please, don't participate! WTH??? I feel horrible for any child that gets that!

Sirtain 10-30-2013 07:15 AM

And I notice she doesn't have the guts to sign her letter. Typical. (Although, I guess that may have just been removed by the person who originally posted got a hold of it.) But strange, if she is actually pleased enough with what she has come up with, to urge others do the same.

If I was a parent... One by the way would be with my child if they were trick or treating around the neighborhood so that Letter would not be "coming home" to me - I would hopefully see the letter and tell the lady exactly what I think about her. What gives her the right? I hope someone takes action - someone should plant a sign in her yard that says, "don't visit this house, an evil witch lives here, and she will hurt you". Or maybe some parents can get together and do a human shield and prevent her from being near any kids ;)

what a freaking.....bumblebee:annoyed: That's just so not cool!

Librarygirl 10-30-2013 09:20 AM

I showed this letter to some of the people in my office. Needless to say, no one had anything good to say about it.:annoyed::venting:

I wonder if she will carry through with her plan?

Stardust 10-30-2013 09:58 AM

I'd be absolutely FUMING if my child got a letter like that.

Becky 10-30-2013 11:32 AM

I have 3 kids, one "normal" and skinny, one severly Autistic and normal weight, one "normal" and overweight, all eat almost exactly the same stuff and have candy only very rarely (the skinny one actually eats the most crap)! Who is this person to judge our kids?!? If I ever got a note like that with my overweight son or a note like thxe other "helpful" neighbor wrote to the mom of the autistic child's mom I would be banging on the neighbor's door with a few choice words spewing out of my mouth!! Actually 2 years ago we did our last bout of TOTing in the neighborhood we used to live in (our kids are still friends with a lot of the kids who live there and we all go out as a group). On the second house I went up to the door with my then Autistic 14 year old who talks very little, the lady said "one candy only please" and Zach had almost reached for another, before I could tell him to only take one she slapped his hand and almost yelled "only One!" I was absolutely stunned and tried to explain that he is severly autistic and would have put it back if she would have given him a second. i told our friends what happened and they said they should have skipped her house because she is not a nice person to kids. The author of that horrible note sounds like she is a very sad, trouble maker and I'm willing to bet if she does hand out those notes her house will be trashed by a pissed off mob! I'd TP it for sure!!

zipp2play 10-31-2013 06:54 AM

Becky, I cannot believe she SLAPPED your son!!!! I think I would have slapped her.

Both my kids have been bigger. We are BIG people. My DS14 has never been skinny and won't ever be. He has followed JUDDD and is down like 40 pounds so now, he is as close to skinny as he ever will be. My DD12 is at that awkward pudgy pre-mentral stage. She is NOT Fat, but she is not skinny either. If that woman handed either of my kids that note, I would go OFF! What does she know about the struggles of any child who may be over weight? If she doesn't know them, she can't know the issues!

My brain screams "FAKE", but more likely, this is a sociopathic person, one who loves to stir up everyone else's emotions and feeeed off them, as well as the attention it gets them.
