Dear Scott:

My 13 year-old daughter asked me to buy her a scale. On one hand I want her to be aware of what her healthy weight should be which could encourage her to eat right and to stay in shape, but I don’t want to promote dieting and an unhealthy obsession with weight. Is a scale a good or bad idea for a 13-year-old?
