Wow, that's a pretty in your face answer. A) You assume that the parent is responsible for a heavy child when that might not be the case. There might be a legitimate reason for the age group and weight class. But you assume laziness, that's ignorant and plain mean to answer in such a manner without knowing the facts. B) I think you are the type of person that no matter what the answer wants and MUST respond accordingly to your ill nature. C) Video games are fine, especially if you are playing with others as well, so don't site anti socialism just because they like to play some video games.
D) This is for the parent, I am 44 yrs old, still play, not much as I have kids of my own, 3 businesses, and its the simple things in life that can bring joy at a small cost. Done in moderation, a great time for friends, and family together. One of my kids plays for about 15 min on her own and looses interest. One of my kids loves video games (and she is not over weight, nor am I)
Its a video game, not crack, alcohol, sex, bad attitude towards life, so many other items in the world that are worse. Off to get the Wii U for my kids this year, waited long and no more Wii games are being made, most of Nintendo games are geared for together play. ENJOY!
