Highlighting recent events that have attracted public interest and basing them as a means of creating a clear background on the topic for the audience. Then mentioning its importance and set rolling an urge to see what unfolds. In review of the recent debate, obesity reveals itself as a matter of larger importance and condensing it into a debate of custody rights will be an exercise in futility as appertains to solving the pandemic mystery.

In concluding, defending my position will be by arguing out the cost-benefit and causal-effect analysis. This will exonerate parents altogether based on facts.
Parents should never lose custody of their obese children.
When we consider the cost benefit analysis of this case, the conclusion is that parents should keep custody of their obese children. However, the conclusion is not entirely based on the question of guiltiness or innocence of parents in managing their children; it will cast a wider net into areas likely to pass unnoticed if we allow the blame debate to consume us. Such will include policies holding a nation accountable to its health choices.
