Do you think parents are the sole cause of childhood obesity?

  • Yes they do

    Parents are the ones buying the food and watch there kid gain the weight but do nothing but on the other hand they are also the ones that make you eat under peer pressure. They do not make their kids be active and go out side so they can lose the calories calorie in calorie out

  • Yes, I do.

    I'm going to go from a statistical standpoint here and say that they are the cause of childhood obesity, because these numbers dwarf the percentages for any other reason for childhood obesity. You must feed your kids properly and make sure they get out and active almost every single day.

  • No, but they do contribute a lot.

    A child may have the genetic make up that leads him or her to be heavier than other children. A child may have emotional issues that lead him or her to eat when no one is looking or to eat less healthy when awa from the parents. But parents certainly are one of the big causes because of what they feed and how they do or don't monitor their children.

  • There are some diseases.

    No, I do not think that parents are the sole cause of childhood obesity, because there are some specific diseases that children can have that result in obesity. Most of the time, the parent is responsible, but there are some very rare diseases that result in weight gain that a parent cannot manage.

  • Parents are only part of the problem with obesity.

    Parents are feeding their children unhealthy food, that fact is unavoidable. But they are not the sole cause of childhood obesity. Sugar, in it's many different forms, is in so many of the foods that we eat that it is nearly unavoidable. And fast food is so cheap and easy that it is the go to route for meals. If healthier options were cheaper and easier to come by then childhood obesity wouldn't be as bad as it is now.
