    Moet instead of Mott’s? I’d rather have Moet “grape juice” – but this kid won’t be touching that for more than 20 years.

    Unfortunately what we consider “plain stupidity” can get you investigated by Child Services. A baby monitor is now a must. And one person I know was investigated for taking all the electronics away from her child. Even a guy in Ontario was investigated over a picture his daughter drew of “daddy shooting the monsters in the closet”, guy didn’t even own a gun.

    Sounds like Canada is as bad as the USA in some ways.

    There’s a commercial where the spokesman says, “Why did (brand name) make an antiacid that tastes like berries? Because this is America, and in America, we not only make things you need, we make things you never even knew you needed.”
    There are many ‘tools’ available to modern parents of which I’m envious. But there are some modern parents who are more willing to provide ‘things’ instead of what children really need- an involved parent who reads, talks, and plays with the child instead of putting the child in front of a tv/tablet/monitor screen.
    Respectfully,

    Sorry, but anyone who thinks that “Designer Diapers”, and “Imported Organic Baby Food” is an essential for raising a child today is a complete putz, and has been totally manipulated into being another mindless consumer sheep, ready to be sheared at the whim of some national corporation.
    Generations and generations of children were raised with “Pampers”, and “Gerber Baby Food”.

    I remember seeing a cartoon with 3 women sitting on a bench at a playground. One is saying "We have little Billy on Ritalin, and it has done wonders for his ADHD. The second says “Little Jenny is on another new drug our pediatrician suggested, and it seems to be great.”They ask the third mother what she does for HER child, and her response is “Well, we read to him daily, no more then 1 hour of television a night, and we have plenty of playtime.”We need a LOT more parents like this. Not the ones who will drug their kids…

    And it’s not just that people must spoil their kids so relentlessly as they must impose them on everyone.
    .
    In my neighborhood, they want to ban barbecuing in the park because the fumes are bad for baby. Even bars are no longer a refuge from the stroller nazis.
    .
    I don’t like mean or abusive parents, but am quite okay with the seen-and-not-heard parenting culture I grew up with as a kid. My parents didn’t wear me like a status symbol. (Haha! Kind of funny to think of.)

    Meh. My sister has a 6 month old. Necessities not given by doting friends and relatives either come from clearance or garage sales. Babies don’t care about gifts or name brands. This is the time for practicality.

    The cost of children is not so much the silly doo-dads and off-road strollers — only parents who have the money buy them. The cost of parenting is in the huge income gap that has developed over the past thirty years. Now families where both parents work can barely get by, let alone afford child care; and if you have a job, there’s no promise that you’ll have it still next year.

    This may be one side of the equation. But the other side is more detrimental to our society. Bastard Children have the most problems living in a polite society and being productive members of the USA. When I worked in a High school years ago and over heard " Oh I can not wait to get pregnant so I can leave this place and collect a check.’ I knew we as a nation where in trouble!

    The more I think about this strip…. yawn…. They bought all that so they must have money and all.
    Of course the most important factor in a child’s life is quality time with a mom and a dad. So at least the kid in the strip has that almost going for him… after you take away the remote. O
    But then again now a days in order to order to make a living both mom and dad have to work. One to make the money and the other to pay the taxes.

    Plus just look at birth rates and tell me who is breeding and who is not.

    “Oh, I can not wait to get pregnant so I can leave this place and collect a check”
    .
    I have to call you on this. When making stuff up out of the whole cloth, perhaps something not so obvious a lie would work better.
