Not surprisingly, very little research has been carried out to explore the impact of family structure on this epidemic. In a recently available edition of the Journal of Applied Analysis on Children: Informing Plan for Kids at Risk, study by Kimbro and co-workers shows that kids living in a normal two-parent married household are less inclined to be obese than children living with cohabitating parents, who’ve a 31 % obesity rate. The rate of obesity is even higher for children living with a grown-up relative , single mother and cohabitating stepparent family members .Parents often observe that the young child appears to be spending so much time to breathe while asleep. According to authors, developmental changes in the association between OSA and obesity may follow a different age trajectory among various other ethnicities. African-American children seem to be at higher risk for OSA independent of weight problems, and their pubertal advancement may occur earlier weighed against Caucasian children.
