Two other factor are hanging fire here, though.

  1. If diabetes runs in your family, or breast cancer -- just as it does for coronary disease for your guide -- you are much more vigilant about regular check-ups. And yet this attitude is not true of fat: why?
  2. If diabetes runs in your family, or allergies or schizophrenia, you are much more vigilant about watching out for your kids' health, which includes medical check-ups, menu-planning and exercise, and the general environment you create in your home and parenting style. The same has to be true for overweight. in ways, it's a lot more complicated to watch out for a child's disposition to gain weight than it is to watch our for her or his blood sugar, so you'd better get really creative and positive in your parenting roles.
Otherwise, the blame game just goes on.
