Psychological damage in obese children
The damage caused by obesity to children’s psychology is receiving increasing attention.
Psychological damage is not as easy to detect as physical damage, but it has a profound impact on children’s personality, temperament, personality, and the development of various abilities in the future.
The psychological damage caused by obesity is mainly manifested in low self-evaluation, obvious inferiority complex, lack of self-confidence, depression, bad partnership, worry about emotional deterioration, and loneliness.
Due to the influence of social customs and aesthetics, too many children are often troubled by not wearing beautifully fitting clothes. Because obesity affects sports, they are worried about going to school.
Some children even think that their body shape is difficult to be accepted by classmates and lose interest in going to school.
A 12-year-old fat child told us: “At school, students don’t love to play with me.
I don’t want to ask me to play if I run slowly.
No one walks with me on the way.
I am used to being alone. In addition to going to school, I read at home and I don’t want to go anywhere.
“Some obese children are among the best in their academic performance, but there are very few students who ask him.”
Because of fat, the insulting nickname is banned by peers, and it is also common among obese children.
Fat children are mostly introverted, and there are things that are not willing to talk to parents or classmates, but like to hide in the psychological, they are often timid when dealing with strangers, and do not want to express themselves in group activities.
Many social factors, such as discrimination in employment, education, marital status and economic income, suffer from obesity, etc., also cause psychological stress to obese children to varying degrees.
In addition, parents’ reprimands, violations, and concerns are also one of the reasons for the psychological burden of fat children.
In summary, obese children have many behavioral characteristics that are different from normal weight children. These behaviors play an important role in the occurrence and development of obesity.
Obesity excessively damages the child’s physical health, and it also causes great harm to the child’s psychology, which should attract the attention of the society.
In the treatment of obesity, psychological treatment should be replaced, correcting the bad behavior related to obesity, establishing a healthy and scientific life mode, fundamentally treating obesity, and restoring the physiology of too many children to normal.
