I came across this news clip the other day and thought I’d share it. I appreciate that some people have different views on the following topic and although some might not agree with the other’s views, I thought I’d take the core focus of the topic and discuss that instead. This article reports the story about a 200 pound 8-year-old boy who was taken from his family and placed in foster care after county case workers in Cleveland said his mother wasn’t doing enough to control his weight. Some people will say this is wrong and some will agree with the county case workers. Instead of choosing which side I think is right, I’d like to ask the following: “Why are so many other children – both younger and older than the boy in question – overweight and out of shape?” The longer people debate and point fingers at who to blame, the real problem will only take longer to get resolved. If it’s a parenting problem, a government problem or both, something needs to be done…fast! This overweight generation of children are at risk of an early death or at the very least, a difficult, complicated and expensive life trying to cope with the several degenerative diseases they either may have or will no doubt succumb to. Another branch of argument is free will. Some people may argue that if the children want to be overweight and choose to eat junk food, why stop them. Well, I doubt these children really want to get overweight…it could be a double-barreled problem of them not having healthy alternatives (either in terms of choice, budget or both) and not receiving the proper education and awareness about the risks of eating junk food
