exick: Are these people so thick that they don't realize it was their problem? If your 1-year-old is overweight, it's either an actual medical condition or you are farking feeding it too much! What do you mean the healthy habits didn't stick? Motherfarkers, you are in charge of the food! Who the hell else is feeding your child?
Apos: Do you remember when CNN was a respected news organization?
Lionel Mandrake: Apos: Do you remember when CNN was a respected news organization?It still is...outside of AmericaI don't know why the domestic CNN decided to go full retard, but, fortunately, CNNi just went partial retard.
NuttierThanEver: Apos: Do you remember when CNN was a respected news organization?Human interest stories have been part of news reporting going back to the begining of print journalism. Childhood obesity is reaching epidemic proportions in the US. Media outlet combines the two to draw readers?I'm ok with this.
iheartscotch: Good thing she lost the weight; but, mother of god; if you can't control what your child eats; you suck as a parent.
Lionel Mandrake: This is the lead story on CNN.com right nowIf by "lead story" you mean small link in the "Featured" area, then yeah, I guess.I did have to look though, as it wouldn't have surprised me.
busy chillin': iheartscotch: Good thing she lost the weight; but, mother of god; if you can't control what your child eats; you suck as a parent.oh, blow it out your semi colon.; )
brobdiggy: I know we can all crap on CNN for having this as a "news" story, but it actually IS good news to hear that it happened.Not too many years ago, our country was in the stage of "You can't tell your child they're fat! You'll hurt their body image and self-esteem! You can only say good things about your kid or she'll be damaged!"It's a small step in the right direction.
The more you eat the more you fart: Not gonna rtfa.Safe assumption the parents are lardasses themselves.Keep feeding your kids Froot Loops and whole milk and twinkies, fatasses.
Gyrfalcon: The most shocking thing about this story isn't that a little girl got fat or that a little girl lost some weight. It's that the parents took so long to realize that the WHOLE FAMILY had to change their habits so their little girl could lose weight.
