Unforntunately, no. Skin elasticity is a genetic trait. People whose skin that can stretch without tearing (stretch marks) has a higher level of a substance called elastin, which allows the skin to stetch. Without sufficient quantities of this substance the onty way to get rid of the excess skin is with plastic surgery. Exercise will tome the muscle in the area, but you also cannot lose weight in one area alone by exercising that region.

How many crunches should a 12 year old kid do ev ery day to lose weight?

Diet and exercise are both good ways to lose weight, but something like crunches probably aren't the best idea to lose weight without some type of cardio. If you just want to lose weight, I would suggest at least 10 or 15 minutes of cardio exercise a day, whether it be running, doing jumping jacks, whatever.. As long as it gets your heart pumping. In the lines of crunches, if you are specifically trying to target your stomach and midsection, do as many crunches as you can until it starts to burn, and then do about half as many more. If you don't feel the burn, you're not helping yourself any (no pain, no gain - right?). Don't just do straight crunches, either, try situps, and even pushups if possible to work more of your torso. Every person is different, so I can't say whether or not crunches will even help, at 12, your body may not be ready for muscle development, so you won't have a 6 pack, but anything that burns calories will help you lose weight. Just eat healthy, and do a good amount of cardio. Try doing some crunches before AND after as a warm up and a cool down. Oh and don't forget to stretch! It sounds silly, but you will be happy in the morning when you aren't half as sore as you could have been!
