Anyhow I voted that parents SHOULD lose custody of their obese children - but I would like to elaborate.
If there is a legitimate medical reason causing the child to be obese, then no the parents should not lose custody of that child, unless they are only contributing to the problem.
With that being said, parents who use PS3's as babysitters to "watch" their children SHOULD lose custody. Children have a lot of energy. They should be ACTIVE. I don't care how poor a parent is, or how expensive activities are, THE LOCAL PARK IS FREE! A frisbee costs $2 at Walmart. Some of the greatest inventions and products ever are on the market right now. The people that thought up these products grew up having to use their imaginations - and look what it did for them. I am terrified to see what this world will be like in 20 years. Our future leaders are growing up killing people on their Nintendo Cube's and Playstations. The get NO exercise, no mental stimulation, and some get no emotional support. They grow up living in a fantasy world, and after sometime I could understand how reality and fantasy might intertwine in their minds.
So if the parent has caused or contributed to the obesity of the child - YES - they need to lose custody as punishment to them, and for the sake of the child in question.
