In the sentence: "Dr. Phil counseled the mother of a four-year-old who weighs 150 lbs."

Would it be better to say, "Dr. Phil counseled the mother of a child who weighs 150 lbs."

Because wouldn't the first sentence be considered wrong because it states the childs age?

  • Essay Writing - ,

    The child's age is extremely important. Remember that children are those between birth and age 18.

  • Essay Writing - ,

    It is of more importance to establish who weighs 150 lbs, the child or the mom.

    Dr. Phil counseled the mother of a 150 lb 4-year-old.
