Some children may be getting more trick than treat when they collect their candy this Halloween.

According to reports, a woman in Fargo, North Dakota says she'll be handing out letters, instead of sweet treats, to children she believes are "moderately obese." 

Read the letter here- http://www.today.com/moms/swapping-letters-candy-trick-or-treat-8C11493000

What do you think of what she's planning to do?  Do you think it will help in the fight against obesity?

The children already know they are chubby. They do not need some woman to tell them that.

The word that comes to mind is...bully.

No, She should shut her door and turn off her lights and let others' kids be. Wow!
