dc.description.abstractThis exploratory study investigated the cultural knowledge which informs the behaviors of obese school age females to adhere to restricted calorie diet plans. Ethnographic interviews were conducted with three mildly obese females ages 10 years, 11 years and 12 years. The data provided by the informants was organized into domains of meaning, dimensions of contrast, and cultural themes. Two cultural themes identified from the data were "I control" and "I want to feel good about myself." Recommendations for care of obese school age children based on the findings of this investigation were: 1) care plan development should include the child as a co-developer; 2) elements which enhance the child's sense of self-esteem should be included into the care plan.en_US
