As you may or may not have heard. Cookie Monster from Sesame Street no longer gorges on cookies and instead eats healthier foods. Parents are also encouraged to leave vegetables and juice out for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. This is supposed to encourage children to eat healthier foods. While I've never heard anyone contribute their bad eating habits to Santa Claus or Cookie Monster, my real question is: When do parents plan on taking the blame for letting their child develop bad eating habits? Or gasp...When does it become the kid' responsibility for letting themselves get fat? A coworker of mine said that parents of obese children should be put in jail for child neglect and to my suprise a lot of people agree with her. What's you're take on it?
