Could your weight potentially be affecting whether or not you can raise your kids?
Well for one Canadian father this has become his reality. An obese father is struggling to get his kids back after being accused of being too fat to be able to properly raise his children.
“I’m waiting on a decision to be handed down by family court if I’ll ever see my children again,” he told CTV. “One of the reasons they used is because I was too fat, and couldn’t keep up with my children.”
The man’s children are being held in foster care, after their mother was treated for a mental breakdown as well as a suspected overdose.
A doctor involved in the case suggests that the father is too overweight to raise his kids. Yet, the father claims that since the case has begun he has lost weight, dropping over 150 pounds.
“I am a stress eater,” the father told CTV. “Having them in my life would cause stress, but not having them in my life would cause even more stress. Nothing can be compared to my kids. If I lose my kids for good, it’s over for me.”
What do you think? Should he be able to get his kids back?
