A recent public awareness video aims to show how obesity-related health problems can be a result of a person’s long-term behavior — dating back to how their parents raised them.

The video by Strong4Life, a campaign started by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, can be hard to watch. But it definitely makes a point.

How much responsibility do you think parents should take for their children’s obesity?

    Barring any health issues I believe 100% of the resposibility rests with parents. Let the t.v/ps4 babysit your kids and mcdonalds feed them and youll have problems.
    But hey….I also believe you should be “licensed” to have children these days. Whatch the news to see why I think that.

      It’s not the government’s job to enforce healthy food choices. People have the entire world wide web at their finger tips, if people want to live healthy they have easy options openly available to them, and the information on how to do so.
