A higher risk of obesity for children neglected by parents
Date:11/13/2007

arital status, body mass index, prenatal smoking and age, and the childrens sex and birth weight. Neither the frequency of corporal punishment nor psychological aggression was associated with an increased risk of obesity.

Corporal punishment and psychological aggression are common discipline techniques resulting from a childs misbehavior, and the child may come to anticipate them as consequences of their misbehavior, Whitaker said.

In contrast, the child may not understand the cause of the neglect and the child might mistakenly feel at fault, he added.

These experiences of neglect could translate into a great deal of stress for the child, which might, in turn, influence mood, anxiety, diet and activity. As we know, adults eat in response to stress; the same could be true for children, Whitaker said.

You cant make a childs life stress free, but parents can strive to be more of a buffer against stress, rather than one of the causes of stress, he said.
