A woman in North Dakota, plans to give a sealed letter to any overweight children who ring her doorbell for “tricks or treats” today. She will then instruct the children to give the sealed letter to their parents.
In the letter, the woman plans to tell the parents that they are acting irresponsibly by sending their children out to seek candy when they are already overweight.
The letter, which was emailed to her local radio station, reads in part:
“You [sic] child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.
My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.”
This woman who will only identify herself as Cheryl said “she just wants to send a message to the parents that their kids are really overweight and how it’s really irresponsible for parents to send them out looking for free candy just because all the other kids are doing it,”
