|Abstract||The increasing prevalence of obesity creates a need to develop healthcare services that address both obesity and the health problems common to all young people. It is particularly important to involve parents and significant adults to promote easy access and continuity. Improved quality of life is as important as weight loss and prevention of complications. The family has an important role to play in helping adolescents develop their autonomy and enter adulthood. When family structures are affected by a child's chronic condition, it is necessary to provide support to parents during these changes. Feelings of isolation and discouragement are best tackled by involving parents and helping them to find ways to motivate and assist their children on their developmental path.|
