My daughter is almost 14 years old and over the last couple of years she has gained a lot of weight. She is not as active as she used to be. We have been trying to change our habits as a family so that we don't single her out even though the rest of us are average weight for our height. As a family, we eat a lot of fruits and vegetables for snacks and we try to limit junk food and fast food. We try to do things as a family, but she has to take some responsibility for herself. I can't be with her all the time. Really, I just don't know how to talk to her about it. I love her so much and I am so worried about hurting her feelings. And I don't want to cause her to become anorexic or anything. Please help me.
