In the attached article Obesity Figures in More Custody Battles – WSJ.com, it states that many mothers and fathers in custody battles are increasingly hurling accusations at each other about the nutrition and obesity of their children.  Many parents are losing custody because of this.

We are all aware, or should be, that child obesity is increasing in our country and that about 17% of the nation’s children are obese.  As a Family Law Paralegal, I have heard many parents state that the other parent does not listen to them when they inform them of their child’s last checkup where the doctor states that their child is obese and in some cases diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, which is also on the rise in this country.

As parents and grandparents, we are obligated to make sure our  children are healthy and happy.   Take a look at the article and then decide if it is really worth it to ignore your child’s weight and well-being.
