    c’mon dad play along with Calvin, father and son moments make life long memories that you both can look upon some day and have a good laugh. Man I wish I had that with my father. He left out of my life when I was five, so I have very few memories of him.

    Sorry for that wolf. Calvin’s dad is at least listening and responding to the list. I think he probably had a list of his own as a child.

    Are you sure that some of those are from dad Calvin?

    On the nail doctortoon–especially since dad can make promises on something (such as the mandatory school attendance) over which he actually has no control.

    Calvin, we see you don’t like any rules at home. Why don’t you leave ? Take your sled, your space helmet, your dart gun, some comic books, a few sandwhiches and take off to the Yukon. Don’t take Hobbes with you, otherwise you’ll get into trouble anyway ……………..

    Whether or not they play the game, more Dads should just be there.

    Love the first frame. “If you want to stay, Dad…” This kills me. If I’d spoken to my father this way he’d have nailed my butt to the wall. Calvin you should want Dad to stay, he pays the bills ok?

    Dad would never say yes to the school thing because he knows what would happen if mom had to be home alone with Calvn all day, every day. My dad would have ended the conversation with the first sentence. He was a great dad but did not believe that children should be allowed to tell adults what to do.

    your father sounds like a smart guy madam, children shouldn’t be allowed to tell parents what to do. 99% of the time I react just like calvin’s dad, just play along patiently. The only two things my kids stand in the corner for is lying and trying to tell an adult what to do. They can make their own decisions affecting themselves for the most part, as long as they can tell the truth and take the responsibility and the lecture for it when they go wrong, but they should learn that it isn’t right or fair to go dictating what others do with their lives.

    I think calvin’s dad’s patience is the coolest.

    If I spoke to my dad that way I would not be able to sit for a week.

    I really like the way Calvin is looking over his shoulder with a “will it work?” look in the forth frame. Even Calvin knows when he is pushing the envelope of acceptable behaviour.

    Did Calvin mention broccoligate? A reduction of bath time to once per year?

    I like the way dad placates his kid’s adolescent rants.

    My dad didn’t have much of a sense of humor….which often cost me dearly in the end.

    Dad looks like he’d might like to repeal a few of Calvins rights. This could backfire on him.
