Pediatric Obesity

For the family of an obese child, *should* the whole family go on the same diet together? Research suggests this is highly effective. What are pros and cons of both sides? If the best plan *is* for the whole family to go on a diet together, what do you think would be the payoff (why and what) the rest of the family who is already able to keep weight off? Should they have to hide their periodic trips to McDonalds?

I am looking for a jumpstart of sorts. I am looking for original ideas/opinions (not research-I have that) that would be a comprehensive way to deal with this problem.

Ultimately, I am looking for at least a couple pages so I can get the reasoning behind your opinion.
