Caloric Restriction versus Obesity

This is my response to David Friedman's thought that a parent who does not enforce a Calorie Restricting diet (ie provides a standard diet) on their children is nearly as unfit a parent as one who overfeeds their children because in both cases lifespan is being shortened.

paternalism and restrictions by society can never be good. Low BMI value is acutally more dangeous than a slightly high BMI. if society has to take care of a child as a result of misscarege by a parent, then it should be ok since a child can't take care of itself.but to put straight restictions, only based on BMI is simply...stupid
