Parents are poor judges of children’s weight

1.┬áThis article does not mention whether these parents are overweight themselves. What about taking parents’ weights into consideration? Would the results look similar or different.

2. The article states that “Parents were most likely to underestimate the weight of 2- to 5-year olds”. In this age range of 2 to 5, does baby fat influence their poor judgements?

3. What about these parents’ mental health statuses? Do mental health issues play any role in these parents poor judgements?
