That's terrible, totally agree its child abuse - and someone on there has said its the kids fault and she should have said no - what a crock of b.s she is a kid she isnt grown up enough to make grown up choices about food its down to the parents. grrr mad.
I thought that too, but its only been now she's had medical intervention for her weight, they wouldn't do a documentary on her if it was an illness that caused it, it is the parents..she was asking for popcorn without being able to walk!
If feeding your child too few calories is child abuse and a prosecutable offense, surely feeding them too many calories should be one as well. I bet if they did the tests both those children would be malnourished.
