The authors Ling Zhu and Breanna Thomas explain the concerns of childhood obesity and the self-esteem for these young children in school districts in their journal, "School-Based Obesity Policy, Social Capital, and Gender Differences in Weight Control Behaviors", using an assertive tone yet a passionate tone to get positive feedback from their readers.
