I just saw on the news where the Department of Children Services are going to start taking children away from parents that neglect children by letting them get too fat.

And can I say BOUT TIME!!!

I've been preaching this forever! Parents that allow children to get fat should LOSE their children.

They're already doing this and thank God that these children will be getting help from their abusive parents.

Here's the actual story from news channel 5

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Extreme cases of obesity in children can now lead to DCS intervention on grounds of child neglect.

A high-profile case recently made headlines in Ohio after social workers took a 200 pound, eighth grader from his parents.

It has happened in Tennessee too. During the past five years, seven child obesity cases have been referred to the Department of Children's Services. In six of those cases, the child remained in the home, but one child was placed in foster care.

"Of course we see obese kids," said Dr. Mary Keown, a Nashville pediatrician. Dr. Keown said that in extreme cases she counsels the parents about better nutrition and exercise for their children.

"But, at a certain point, if they don't comply it becomes medical neglect," said Dr. Keown. And in extreme cases, doctors will contact DCS.

It's a serious health issue according to Dr. Keown, who said severe obesity can lead to hypertension, diabetes, early stroke and death.

"The generation we bring up now may be the first that doesn't live longer than we do," said Dr. Keown.

Everyone tries to make excuses for childhood obesity instead of trying to do something about it. DCS is only taking away kids from parents that lets them eat themselves to death. What part of that do you not get? You are probably the type that lets your children eat themselves to death. Nobody wants to help these poor kids. If their parents are too pathetic to do something then DCS should step in. These kids will be dead by the time they are 35 to 50 all because they had bad parents that let them eat whatever they want. You are disgusting for defending lowlifes like that.

Studies have shown that the tendency towards being obese is greater in foster homes. So you think the government can do any better?

Sounds like parents refusing to treat Prader-Willi syndrome as the serious medical issue that it is and being charged with medical neglect. If they were letting their child with diabetes or leukemia go untreated y'all would be all for this, but because it's about something you haven't heard of you'll get all defensive.

another way for the government to get our children does anyone ever look at the fact that it might not even be the cause of eating that it is possibly hereditary in their genes on why they are over weight no regular diet can take care of that no matter how much you try

Only in the south is it when you try to protect children from neglectful parents over obesity, do all the fattys come out and fight against the health of a child.

And who is the idiot that keeps saying, "shall not judge" are you that dumb? What does that have to do with child abuse???!?! Go eat you another donut.

I'm sorry but the ones with a health condition or genetic problem is a VERY small percentage. A overwhelming percentage of overweight people in this country is simply because they eat too much and exercise too little. I went to high school in the 60s and out of the entire school I can't think of maybe 2 or 3 people that were chubby.. not even fat just kind of husky. We didnt eat all the junk food, sodas, etc that these kids get all the time today. now listen if you are a heavy person and a adult by ALL means live your life the way you want to live!! if that means eat till you kill yourself then that's up to you. but I dont see how a rational, loving caring human being can support child neglect like some of you are. Maybe you lack the rational thought to process what is going on or maybe you just think teaching kids to me unhealthy and letting them eat whatever they want is acceptable in your family. I hope that is not the case. Kids should be healthy not fat.

If Calories Out>Calories In, then you will lose weight. There's no magical curse of genes that makes fat people just ALL THAT MUCH BETTER at getting calories out of food (though there are conditions that lower metabolism). If you're eating fewer calories than you burn you will lose weight-this isn't some mystery, people.
matter of fact
