Acceptability of a Program for Parenting Young, Overweight Children A group lifestyle education program for overweight/obese children 6 to 15 years old and parents was adapted for the youngest age group (6-9 years) based on program evaluation. The new curriculum had parents reflect on their influence over the family health-related environment while exploring feeding and activity relationships. Children experienced self-expression through verbal, physical, and creative facets of healthy lifestyle behaviors. Six groups experienced a 2-week program (two 5-hour sessions on 2 consecutive Saturdays). Summary evaluation demonstrated significant increases in parent perceived knowledge for each subject area and a high degree of program satisfaction.

Acceptability of a Program for Parenting Young, Overweight Children

Abstract

A group lifestyle education program for overweight/obese children 6 to 15 years old and parents was adapted for the youngest age group (6-9 years) based on program evaluation. The new curriculum had parents reflect on their influence over the family health-related environment while exploring feeding and activity relationships. Children experienced self-expression through verbal, physical, and creative facets of healthy lifestyle behaviors. Six groups experienced a 2-week program (two 5-hour sessions on 2 consecutive Saturdays). Summary evaluation demonstrated significant increases in parent perceived knowledge for each subject area and a high degree of program satisfaction. One recommendation by parents was to receive this information earlier in the parenting experience.
