I am a child abuser

I saw a rather odd billboard today. It was a picture of an obese child eating a hamburger. It said "Feeding children meat is child abuse." -PETA
I think that is horrendous! Child abuse is a serious thing. They are comparing the beating and torrment of a child to eating a hambuger?! Well, my Ds is eating ham and apples select recipe from Gerber...so I guess I am a child abuser!

I heard about that billboard. I heard some ad company denied them. Obviously, the company that owns that one didn't.

They are for the most part kooks. The more they spew that kind of nonsense, the more people will see them for what they really are.

I think overfeeding a child is child abuse

But not just eating meat

Ask 45% of American moms:

Approximately 30.3 percent of children (ages 6 to 11) are overweight and 15.3 percent are obese. For adolescents (ages 12 to 19), 30.4 percent are overweight and 15.5 percent are obese.
They tend to be doing it

It is possible...back when I used to watch talk shows...

on one show--they had BABY--a 9 month old...HUGE and obese. The parents fed the kid fast food all the time. Why? B/c he/she (I forget which) likes it. How the heck can a 9 month old overpower mom and say get to that drive through and get me a Big Mac?????

That parent I would say could qualifying as abusing that child---I cannot imagine what was wrong in her brain. The child's diet if continued would cause severe health problems!

[talking about the overfeeding and not the meat. I'd have to say that PETA is nuts. But some think I would be crazy since I dont' feed my kids a lot of meat--but they simply don't like it a whole lot...sometimes if it is on dad's plate, they'll eat it...but otherwise, they won't]

I guess you could count me in as a childabuser too. I give DS grilled chicken mixed with his peas or whatever.

Some people are NUTS!

I do agree that one can overfeed a child. I have to say that some kids are obeese due to genetics and slow metabolisms. I have always been overweight. I do not eat much, and I excersise, yet I have a very difficult time losing weight. I have a very slow metabolism and both my parents are obeese. I do not have genetics in my favor. I will not be one of those moms who bring their 6 month olds to McD's! My son eats lots of veggies and fruit. I rarely eat fastfood myself and hardly ever around him. It is different IMHO than "abusing" your child by feeding them meat!

I work for a fast food place and I cringe every time I see a mom dumping a thing of fries in front of a child who's not even out of DIAPERS yet..let alone the crap they let their older kids order. I had one kid today who couldn't have been more than twelve order himself a DOUBLE cheeseburger meal (comes w/lg fries and med drink).

We very rarely eat out and DS has very seldom been given stuff he's not supposed to have. Ok..we have cheated a tiny bit. He had cake last Sunday, but only because my mom was celebrating his Birthday a week early. Sssh..don't tell the food police!
