Seriously, screw all you people with the "lefties" bull#. That's all you barely intelligent people can come up with these days. You literally turn everything into a left/right issue. That says more about you than this kid. I must be missing in this article where it states the parents are "lefties". Oh, right, it's not there. You're just making # up, like most of you "righties" do.

Incidentally, this "leftie" thinks this whole thing is stupid, but I wouldn't want to mess up your idiotic political narrative, now would I?
Up till your post no one used that term, they said "mind controlled" and sjw. Although this particular instance does come directly out of left field "identity politics ". It is what it is. The cereal box doesn't have to say parents any more than it has to use ze and zer made up pronouns. But money talks and pressure and money combined affects the bottom line. The market gives people what they want. But the deeper significance here is this is probably what the child has been exposed to in society.

Lol I can't comment on parenting responsibility, I got # in the school playground from other parents pissed off their son's were jealous because I took mine cliff jumping in the sea when he was 8 or whatever.

I knew he'd do it anyway when he was a teenager so at least teach him safety when young so he ain't the one getting his spine broken.
He's early twenties now and still jumps so I reckon I made the right call.

The parents in the OP were empowering the child in my opinion...she could be a campaigner or activist of the future so good luck to her I say.

Because parents are scared. Scared of the world we live in and the people around them... they don't want anyone else indoctrinating their kids...that's their job.

Of course indoctrination is the parents job. Religious people do it all the time...get em young as they say.
I taught my son to be a free thinker, to question everything and everyone, including me.
That was my style of indoctrination. Life skills.

It's a good thing my parents were never around to teach me anything. The benefits of a broken home is having to learn for yourself I guess.

well action through inaction , they kind of taught you to fend for yourself by their not being there to teach

nice gift that ! self reliance
I guess you could be thankful for that


My parents were an equal set of , let him learn those on his own , and I will teach him these
so it was a mixture of letting me figure things out and things which obviously need teaching !

Lol yes!
My parent tagline was 'Don't kick off, if you disagree then explain why and we'll discuss it' and my lad is great at debating his case as a young adult now.
I never wanted a drone clone, and I'm pleased to say I didn't get one.

I think there has been a misunderstanding , but communication is a part of our relationship!

I meant we can get our imaginary kids to write a manifesto on why children shouldn't eat junk food cereal !
because its bad for your health !

You like yoga and bananas but are ok with kids eating junk food cereal with loads of sugar in it ?
I thought you'd be against that

silly..our kids owned the company eventually! it is their business. they didnt eat them surely when kids because it is abuse on mom if she hasnt the pleasure of cooking for them.
It is totally other moms' problem what their kids eat.

It's called progress and growth.

I'm your dad's day they could go to the park and shoot bows.
I'm your dad's dad's dad's day the kids could go to war when they were 14.
Not like that now.

Things change. It's called progress and you can't stop it as much as all the babies in this thread would like to.
