perhaps the reason the family were observed under curfew for 2 years while NOT being educated about what they should eat for 2 years , was to help set this precedence.

They should face some sort of legal penalty, because that's definitely child abuse, but I agree that it's extreme for them to be faced with the possibility of never again seeing their children.
Weight issues are NOT abuse.

We are required to keep our children healthy and safe. Letting them become obese is doing neither. Type 2 Diabetes can set in rapidly. Do I condone any gov't agency taking children away from their parents, NO! But there has to be some responsibility and who is there to hold the parents responsible? Man, I am really stumped on this one. Being a holistic nutritionist and personal trainer I know the need to keep health number 1 above all in our lives. But I don't even agree the gov't should take children away from a drug home, being a man who came from a drug home as a child.....
I would get the people on Dr. Phil or some other show where the audience can chastise them I suppose, because I am at a loss....

Do you feel the same way about parents who smoke in the home?
IS IT? I think the number one cause of death is the Goverment and Illuminati myself with all their toxins and posions?
