Comprehensive Literature Review I researched and evaluated a lot of information on my hypothesis: If it is a parent’s responsibility to cure obesity? Sources of information included articles and journals from the health and medical fields. I used online information from these articles to formulate an analysis for my hypothesis. Information was also taken from the online websites of the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. In the article focused on preschool aged children in Sweden it was concluded the Child Eating and Behavior Questionnaire was reliable and valid in assessing eating behaviors of preschoolers (Ek, et al. "Associations between Parental Concerns about Preschoolers’ Weight and Eating and Parental Feeding Practices: Results from Analyses of the Child Eating Behavior Questionnaire, the Child Feeding Questionnaire, and the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist"). The study found that parent’s practices for feeding children did affect the child’s eating behaviors. If the child was brought up being made to eat everything on his plate then as an adult he would continue to eat this way. Another article proved that the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist they used in their study was valid (Ek, Sorjonen, Nyman, Marcus, & Nowicka "Child behaviors associated with childhood obesity and parents' self-efficacy to handle them: Confirmatory factor analysis of the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist" 2015). The article dealt with children’s obesity related behaviors and how parents handle them. They used a sample of Swedish children and parents. They concluded that the Lifestyle Behavior Checklist could help us learn what obstacles parents face and how they face them with their obese children. This checklist could help parents come up with a plan for their families to be healthy. In the International Journal of Obesity there was a study done evaluating social demographics, eating habits and exercise an observed 60 obese children. They study changed their eating behaviors

with help from the parents. The conclusion was support my hypothesis of it being the parent’s sole responsibility to maintain good eating habits to control the amount of weight gained by children.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
