Another question made me think of this. Is allowing your children to overeat and in turn have medical conditions because of over indulgence and lack of exercise are form of child neglect? Say the the child had diabetes simply due to the previous mentioned things and only had to change their eating habits and exercise habit to rid the diabetes. Is this negligence on the parents behalf?
Yes I believe it is. We are actually dealing with this in a way. My stepdaughter is overweight. And it's because her Bio mom doesn't feed her right and she is encouraged to not exercise. I find it sad when a kid wears a bigger size than her brother who is 4 years older than her. She doesn't have diabetes but if she goes outside and runs around for 5 minutes she's out of breath. The most we can really do about it though is talk to Bio mom because we only get her twice a year because she lives 750 miles from us. We've been talking to her mom but she says there is nothing wrong with being overweight and that more people should realize that it's okay to be fat. Now I think that's a form of neglect.
