Day 4 – Childhood and Teen Obesity: Sowing the Seeds of Future Crises

As difficult as it is to get this society to acknowledge that we have a major problem with overweight and obesity, there is one area where the evidence of crisis is rising very rapidly and that is the special problem of excess weight among children and teens.  Many adults are overweight due to emotional problems brought about because of earlier psychological trauma or as a maladaptive response to anxiety.  The youngest overweight children do not have the experience of psychic injury and are yet too young to carry multiple societal burdens.  By the time our youth reach their teenage years and start to develop autonomous life patterns, we had better make sure, as their parents, that we have shown them the pathway towards their own best decisions.  Overweight children are made that way by their parents.

Let’s look at some of the disturbing facts about the rise of this trend within our children:

We’ve often heard and generally agree with the statement: “No nation can rise any higher than the status of its women.”  Then again what of a nation, especially a wealthy nation, that is producing children that are 1) less wealthy, 2) less educated, and 3) less healthy than their parent’s generation?   It doesn’t take rocket science to realize that it’s going to get much worse decades from now according to the current trend.  Because we have seen this crisis many years before it is fully actualized, we must now make decisions as to where we will invest resources for future generations to live to their full potential.
