Even if they don't mean it, kids can say some pretty harmful things at times.

Parents probably bear the brunt of those naive remarks, lecture their kid and move on.

However, when Allison Kimmey's daughter told her brother that she thought her mum was fat, her response was amazing.

After a trip to the pool was brought to an end, Allison's upset daughter told her bother

‘mama is fat'

Kimmey who is a self help author and speaker, had the perfect conversation lined up should this happen.

Once they returned home Allison gave her daughter an inspiring talk behind the myths of fat and the physical benefits it carries.

The truth is, I am not fat. No one IS fat. It's not something you can BE. But I do HAVE fat. We ALL have fat. It protects our muscles and our bones and keeps our bodies going by providing us energy.

Allison posted the conversation on Instagram and post quickly went viral, earning over 32,000 likes in just 5 days.

She also uploaded the post to Facebook and received some fantastic replies, with a range of opinions.

Whichever way you feel about this, it's hard to argue that this isn't a positive example to set for kids.
