Why/How do parents let their children get overweight?


Granted it's not my place to judge but it bothers me when I see an overweight parent walking with an overweight child. I feel bad for the child. Why and how does a parent allow this?

    Sometimes it's hereditary.I know a teenager who's over weight and eats pretty healthy.One side of her family is overweight and the other side is thin.She happened to get the big genes from one of her parents.Can't always judge.

    Yes it does. Honestly, not as bad because it at least shows they take care of themselves which would imply that the child is over weight for an unrelated reason. My mother was large, her mother was thin and I am thin, her issue is medical.
