Stricter Rules Can Steer Kids Away From TV

Miller tells her overweight patients that it is not their problem, it's the family's problem. "It won't work if you treat a child in isolation," she said.

"If the parent is watching 12 hours of TV a day and you are yelling at your kids to go out and play, while you're watching TV with a bag of chips in your face, it will never work," she said.

Miller admits that there is a high failure rate. "There are successes, but it takes a lot of work," she said.

To get kids to lose the weight requires parents to turn off the TV and computer and get active with their children, and doctors and other health professionals can help by coaching children and their parents to stay with a program, Miller said.
