We talk all the time since she has left America for her home in France (she speaks english very well and is going to teach french to kids in england soon). most of the conversations we have are amazing and funny. she talked to me yesterday and she is very hurt about what her parents say about her weight. at first it was subtle things, like "emeline, when are you going to do a sport?" and they told her "since you've left for america five months ago you have been food obsessed". Today she sent me some messages of what her parents said. "my mother told me again, emeline, you've to do something about your weigh" "then i learnt that my father feels really embarassed with my weigh but does not dare to tell me directly" "she told me today that they wanrt to help me, that they are trying to help me because some people are gonna do mean remarks" now why do I feel powerless you may ask? A. She is back home, 7000 miles away B. Even if I wanted to somehow talk to her parents, they speak French, no english C. Even if B were not the case, I don't know her parents. I can't yell at them the first time I meet them.
