Did anyone watch maury about the fat kids?

I think this is ridiculous these two and four year olds weigh between 104-142 pounds its disgusting why would you let your children get this way? Not only is it unhealthy these children are going to have a life of heart ache if they are already over weight! honestly what can a 19 month old do weighing 104 pounds?

Thoughts? I THINK its disgusting on the parents part!

  • I agree. I understand some people have thyroid problems causing them to be overweight, but with these it usually sounds like the parents fault. "When he's hungry I feed him and if io don't he screams until I do" plus its all like pizza and hamburgers!!! Haven't you ever heard of a salad!!! I'm sorry other than the essential 3 meals and two snacks the child can scream in their bedroom all they want. My 3.5 y/o weighs 35 lbs and never seems hungry cause I "don't feed him enough" what are some people thinking? Then the parents cry and cry and say stuff like I don't understand it!

  • I think those parents have serious issues. Some of those kids eat more food in a day than my family of 5. And I'm being serious. I think they should have mandatory parenting classes and if they refuse to attend they get charged with child abuse. In my eyes thats exactly what it is. I also love those parents that say McDonalds made my kids fat. Hello your 2-3 year olds do not drive nor do they have money. And hears a huge word repeat after me NO!
