I saw on the news today that some places are starting to offer weight-loss surgery for kids. And that they believe insurance should cover the surgery. What do you all think about this?
I’m not sure what to think. Weight-loss surgery is such a huge commitment – can a child or teenager really be ready emotionally-speaking to make that kind of commitment and decision? I know when I was young, I was much more impulsive. Maybe some kids are more mature than I was, but I can’t imagine making that commitment when someone is that young.
