Child Obesity (Thesis Statement)
CM220-10: College Composition II
Instructor: Lonelle Rathje

Thesis Statement:
Child obesity is on a rise in America and some people feel that most parents are at fault for this. By letting the child stay at home with the internet, television, and video games the outdoor activities those children need in their lives wanes. For obese children there are programs in your local community and local gyms that can help parents get their children’s lifestyle back on track.

Revised Thesis Statement:
Internet, video games, television, and lack of monitoring a child’s time equals childhood obesity, but with the help of programs and proper dieting we can get them back on track. I think that my thesis is an effective one I feel that the research that I would like to use is statistics from each state in America. Also I feel that using the internet sites that are good with concrete facts will play a factor as well.

The Pitch
Babysitting has gotten a whole lot easier since the days of old. Remember when you had to pay someone to watch your child? I do, however now we have the wonderful world of technology. Now the wonder world of technology is a gift because as parents we can entrust technology to keep our kids in line while we are away at work, cooking, or in the other room with friends. However, most of us fail to realize that we as parents maybe adding to the problem of child obesity. Internet, video games, television, and lack of monitoring a child’s time equals childhood obesity, but with the help of programs and proper dieting we can get them back on track.
