World's Fattest Toddler Banned From Nursery School


worlds fattest toddler xiao haoXiao Hao is 3 years old and 140 pounds. Yep, that is one big toddler. About five times the size of a normal toddler, Xiao Hao is also taller than the average 3-year-old, which makes some doctors believe he has a hormonal disorder.

Other doctors, however, say the tot is a victim of "Little Emperor Syndrome," aka spoiling. You may be asking yourself, "WTF?"

Apparently when Chinese families are only allowed one child, especially if it's a boy, the little dude gets spoiled rotten, and some crazy people think that's how Hao got so tall and wide. Doesn't mom always get the blame?

Mom is getting screwed in another way as well. That is, if she works outside the home. Little (big) Xiao Hao has been banned from several nursery schools in Guangzhou, the region of southern China where Xiao Lin and Hao live.

Why in the world would he be banned?

Reportedly, Hao is considered a "health hazard" to the other children. How the extra large toddler is hurting other children has not been specified in the report in The Sun. But unless Hao is stealing their lunches and sitting on them until they can't breathe, it's simply a case of discrimination. You can't catch "fat."

Xiao Lin is begging for help in slimming down her little boy and says that he does not fit into any swim trunks or inner tubes or she would take him swimming for exercise. Although it seems like some serious hormonal testing and evaluation is really the only hope for Hao to discover what's happening to his little/big body. In the meantime, the kid should be allowed in school, and to have a normal life. Just because he's bigger does not mean he is a hazard.

Would you be upset if your toddler were in school with Xiao Hao?

No, probably not, but I'm not a judgemental person.  With all due respect, you don't know the whole story.  There could be something going on with him which makes nursery school a bad place for him and the other children.  I wouldn't be upset, but then again I don't know the whole story's hard to make an assumption

My DS is also bigger than everyone else--(not as big as that kid but still) I get lots of comments from other adults as well as children, when children ask or say something I handle it okay. But when other adults say something, I have to work hard not to beat the hell out of them, swing them around by their hair or just lose my temper. I bring my son in for thyroid, and other hormonal tests, Hemagolbin A1C once a year but everything is fine. He is just big and broad shouldered and strong as a grown man. But I think Xiao Hao is being discriminated against, and it is sad all children deserve an education.

No I would not be upset. I would be helping the mother find information on doctors willing to help her and state aid if needed. Then again our society is much different and we tend to help rather than shun others.

That poor baby! I would not care at all if he were in school / day care with my kids - as a matter of fact I have seen several severely obese children in my kids elementary school and think nothing of it other than that I hope the kids aren't picking on them!! I also have a 3yr old who is big for his age (not that big like another poster said but still big) and while lil kids comments mean nothing adults just P*SS me off - my son is just tall and broad shouldered, he takes after his great grandpa and there is NOTHING wrong with that!! They should be offering her help and not shunning her and her son!

There is always the possibility of a larger child falling on a smaller one and hurting them. With his weight, he could seriously injure another child if he hit or kicked them (normal toddler behaviour). As a child care provider, I can understand a school's concern.

I'm not saying he shouldn't be allowed to attend, but the teachers would need to be extra vigilant and special accomodations may need to be made.

That poor child!  He is still just a baby as far as I'm concerned.  I hope that he gets the care he deserves.

How dare they make this boy feel like something's wrong with his just because he's different !! He can't help the way God made him !!! One day, his height and weight will come in handy for someone..and they'll be glad he's around to help !!!

Great. Blame and isolate this innocent little boy from other children.  Nice job China. Way to go.
