Why is it so hard for parents to accept that their choices will influence their children? Why do some parents blame their child's obesity on someone or something? If you let your child eat cheesesteaks for dinner every night they will/can gain weight and be unhealthy. If you let your child eat McDonalds all the time they will/can gain weight and be unhealthy. If your child is drinking soda all day they will/can gain weight and be unhealthy. These are just a few examples. I keep hearing/seeing parents blame their child's weight/health issues on everyone/everthing but themselves. Are they just being stubborn/naive? Im not bashing junk food or fatty treats here and there. Moderation is the key. And those obese children on Maury are actual realities for some.
Is a McDonalds toy the reason your child is overweight?!! Should someone blame a diners milk shake for their child being overweight?? Um NOOO
What are your thoughts on this? Why is it so hard for some to own their mistakes/choices?
PS....THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CHILDREN THAT HAVE HEALTH ISSUES
