I found this article very interesting. A mother has been arrested for child neglect for allowing her 14 year old son to become obese at 555 lbs.
There are other issues also that led to her arrest. Her son has a cancer that is very treatable, but has not allowed the doctors to treat him.
Although I find it sad that a mother would allow her child to become severly obese, I do not agree with the medical community or the government making the decision for the parents when it comes to medical treatments. Read this article from the Washington Post and give me your opinion below.
