"Ludwig said he starting thinking about the issue after a 90-pound 3-year-old girl came to his obesity clinic several years ago. Her parents had physical disabilities, little money and difficulty controlling her weight. Last year, at age 12, she weighed 400 pounds and had developed diabetes, cholesterol problems, high blood pressure and sleep apnea."
OMGOSH! This is crazy! What's even crazier is a 90 lb 3 year old! My gosh, my dd is 4 and only weights 33 lbs.
What do you ladies think? Do you agree with this or not? I'm on the fence.

I do not agree that the government take over the parenting of our children and make decisions on how a person should raise their child. If this were to happen it would be a stepping stone to take more and more away from our individual rights. I want to raise my kids my way, not the way anyone else would require me to.
