All of you seem to take the concept of parenthood lightly. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most if not all of you who said yes don't have kids. But disregarding the emotional side of this, under our constitution, we are supposed to have a LIMITED government....taking kids away because they're fat is pretty far reaching and unlimited if you ask me.
On another note, the definition of "obese" has changed over the years, which is another cause of a higher count of obese kids. My ex wife was chubby, but was she obese? No. Yet according to medical charts? Morbidly obese.
As society "progresses", even the medical community can't escape their ideal Barbie Doll 6'1", 95lbs, DD cup size thoughts. That's why people who were once considered "skinny" are now considered "normal" and people who are plain, simple, and clearly healthy are considered "overweight"...where does that put the people who were once "overweight"?
But those of you who said yes, be warned. If your kid is 1 pound overweight, I'm coming to take them!
