I watched a video this morning on CNN about a mother of a 555 pound teenager who was just sent to prison for neglect. Her story is that she has to work so often that fast food is often all she could offer him. Now, that's only an example. What do you feel about this? Obviously, in a sliver of cases, it's a biological issue why the child is overweight. However, the one thing that gets in my way of wanting to side with this being neglect is what about parents who allow their kids to play sports? You know how many kids die playing organized sports each year? Should we start locking up soccer moms? I guess what I'm saying is that there is a lot of obesity research, yes, but to be locking people up and snatching up their kids is a bit harsh. Not to mention, this society produces obesity itself with the need for a fast paced lifestyle. I know, I know. Someone is sitting at their computer thinking, "It's not hard to eat quick and healthy" but the truth is it certainly can be not to mention, the healthier food is more expensive. If you've got a hectic lifestyle, a breakfast hot pocket is going to be much more appealing than putting together a healthy omelet and toast. So considering a lot of the angles out there, should childhood obesity be classed as neglect?
