    Mom and Dad are competing to see who can make Calvin more miserable.

    not sure how to explain to a 6yr old that, when recreating, mom and dad are taking a break from being a mom and dad. ’Cuz first time they recreated – you showed up!

    I confess this arc is uncomfortable.

    Just wait till something happens to Calvin since no one is paying attention to him.

    For a kid, recreation is being the center of attention in a good way. For an adult, it’s not having to worry about paying attention to anything.

    Mom may not like camping. But she likes being left alone.

    Darkness washed over the Dude. Darker than a black steer’s tokus on a moonless prairie night. There was no bottom.

    Recreating what I wonder (certainly not the passion of 1st courtship)…

    and to think that just a few years ago, they celebrated little Calvin’s first steps and little Calvin’s first words

    I bet Calvin will walk back to where Dad is and tell him how cranky Mom is.

    Let’s hope they don’t try to re-create you, Calvin.

    Mom and Dad don’t know how to go on vacation with a kid, do they?

    I really don’t like this strip when the parents are so cold. Sure, children can be annoying, but each person, esp. children deserves a response. It isn’t funny to see Calvin’s parents refusing to respond to him.

    Jeez, Mom, take a pill. Whatever Cal’s faults may be, he does seem like a self-motivated kid. If he isn’t hanging with Hobbes, he’s in his fantasy worlds or watching TV. He’s not the type to be constantly pestering his parents to be entertained. So you can grab a book mark for a couple minutes.

    I’m realizing why Calvin gets into so much trouble. Shame on you mom and dad.

    My mom’s booyfriend took us camping when I was around 7 or 8. He said that I didn’t getany breakfast until I had gone in the lake for a swim. The first time I tried I was shoked by the cold and nearly drowned. No one tried to help me. They all just sat on the wharf and watched. So each morning before breakfast I took a shower in my swimsuit and then had breakfast.

    Makes you wonder why they didn’t just send him to Grandma’s for a few days.

    Genetically engineered kids: designed to sit quietly in a corner until their parents are ready to notice them.

    Painting a picture and reading a book are things that can be done at home on an overcast day. You bring your child on vacation to recreate with him or her, not shun them (or is it shunt?).

    I don’t have kids myself but over the years I’ve been witness to scenes just like this and many is the time I’ve been tempted to blurt out:"Why did you have kids in the 1st place if you’re going to treat them like this?? Just sayin.
