In reference to the story in the news this week..which you can read HERE, Do you think that an Obese Child should be taken away from his/her parents and put in Foster Care?
Wow, what a touche' subject. From the articles they are saying that if you have an obese child then you are neglecting them.
My questions are this:
Who decides what is obese for a child?
Are their circumstances taken into consideration?
What if they have the "fat gene"?
Does this mean that "they" could eventually come into our homes and evaluate what we feed our children?
The bottom line for me.. is that there are always cases of abuse, and neglect. Could an obese child mean neglect? That is possible.. However, to make an assumption..straight across the board is not right to me.
America has a weight problem period. I think we need to look at what the government is allowing in our food. Like I really would like to know...why after high fructose corn syrup was banned years ago..was then later allowed back into the United States. Now as most of you know..dominates a great deal of our food.
Our children are precious, we have a responsibility to care for them.
Certainly a subject worth discussing and thinking about.
