The mother of a 555 lb 14 year old faces child neglect charges for allowing him to reach that state of morbid obesity. She says that she works late shifts so she is unable to cook him healthy meals.

While I agree that this could be, as they said, "opening Pandora's box," I agree with criminal charges for this mother. Her excuse of working late and not being able to prepare healthy food for her son is a ridiculous excuse to begin with, but one that would only work for me if her son was overweight. A morbidly obese child is very different from an overweight child.

My mom worked late and random hours. At 28 years old, 6'2" tall, weighing in at 275 pounds I am technically considered morbidly obese and yet I weigh literally half of what this kid does. No, ma'am. There's a lifestyle going on in your house that needs to change and it has nothing to do with you working late.
