Remember Dara-Lynn Weiss, that super cool, chillaxed mom who forced her 7-year-old daughter onto a Weight Watchers-style diet, shamed her into losing sixteen pounds, then wrote that shitty essay about it that appeared in the April issue of Vogue? Of course you do — you cut out her article and use it as parenting advice all of the time. Even those of you without kids use it to motivate the little butter babies you see on the street. "One too many Pizza Fridays, huh," you say to the little girl with baby fat that you see with her mom on the bus. To the little boy asking for a second piece of birthday cake, you just shake your head in disgust or — if you really want to drive the point home — you push him into the mud in front of all his friends.
