If we are going to focus on parents who endanger their children by allowing them to eat too much unhealthy food, then we also need to focus on all kinds of ways we endanger children. How about those who text and drive? or those who smoke around children? or those who allow their drunk in laws to babysit? or those who eat messy tacos while driving? or those who don't provide ADHD medication to children who would succeed better on it? or those who don't get their kids swim lessons? or those who shoot off fireworks? or what about kids who are only 490 pounds overweight? Are their parents blameless? I could go on and on. Once we interfere in parenting, we open a big old can of worms.
