    Buying new shoes and a 200lb. third grader is not even in the same category. You fail to disclose this went before a judge, so neglect was found to be true.

    Sounds to me like this mother is seriously unfit.

    Not that she isn't loving. Not that she doesn't want what's best for her kid.

    But a 200lb 3rd grader?

    Looks like they tied to work with her but she , for whatever reason, couldn't handle the responsibility of SAVING HER KIDS LIFE.

    The kid was allowed to get so fat he was having trouble breathing? A third-grader? Nah, that's child abuse. They rescued the kid, plain and simple.

    The mother says she's "trying." Well, trying isn't good enough, Mom. You're killing your kid. You need to succeed, not just "try."

    The cause of obesity is genetics, not moral weakness. Not sure what that adds to the mix here, but thought I would toss it in.

    Totally untrue...

    You might be more inclined to be beefy due to genetics, but I know plenty of fat parents who have normal sized kids, and fat kids who have normal sized parents. Almost ALWAYS, the fat ones eat too much and don't exercise...
