LONDON (AP) -- Scottish officials say they may take four heavy children away from their parents after warnings to help their kids trim down have apparently failed.
The children are aged one to 11. The parents are obese and have three older children who are also heavy. For the past two years, the family has lived in government housing and had their eating habits scrutinized.
Last week, officials in Dundee told the family their four youngest children could be taken into foster care or adopted. A government spokesman said they would act in the children‘s best interests.
In the U.S., there have been several cases where obese children have been taken into care after their parents couldn’t help them lose weight.
자녀의 비만 방치하면 양육권 박탈당한다
영국의 스코트랜드 지역에서 부모가 네 자녀를 고도비만상태로 방치하여 양육권을 박탈당할 위기에 처했다.
총 7명의 자녀를 둔 이 부모 또한 비만이며 양육권 제한의 가능성이 제기된4명의 아이들 이외에 3명의 형제들 또한 비만인 것으로 알려졌다.
부부는 2년 전 비만 자녀들을 정상체중으로 돌려 놓으라는 법원의 경고에도 불구하고 그를 실행하지 못해 “4명의 자녀가 아동 보호시설에 맡겨지거나 다른 가정으로 입양될 수 있다”고 관계자는 말했다.
