A Woman is Singling Out Overweight Children This Halloween – Is She Concerned or Being Rude? [POLL]

Most kids expect free candy when trick or treating on Halloween, but some children may be surprised to find a letter in their bags.

This Halloween, one North Dakota woman who only identified herself as “Cheryl” will be handing moderately obese children a letter instead of candy this Halloween.

The internet has blown up with many calling her a “bully” and a Halloween “monster” for thinking the letter is a good idea reports Minneapolis TV station KARE 11. There are also rumors that the story is a fake as no one has been able to find “Cheryl” since her initial call to Fargo radio station Y-94.

The woman believes she is doing these children a service, by telling them to ration the candy they receive, and to stop unhealthy eating habits.

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” says the author in am interview with the morning show at Fargo radio station Y-94.

The letter, in part, reads:

“You 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.”

“I’m contributing to their health problems and really, their kids are everybody’s kids. It’s a whole village,” she said during the interview.

Do you think this woman is truly concerned about these children, or is she just being rude?
