It sounds like the company thought the girl's point that some people don't have moms was a good one. It only makes sense to change the slogan so that it relates to as many people as possible. No one forced the company to do this.

i dont know i think good for her.


lots of men are moaning lately that they are being forgotten and not cared about. this girl thought hay wait my dad deserves recognition.
also this is small but maybe in the future this situation might push her to do more as an adult maybe it will encourage her to
work for human rights, defending persecuted people.

but come on shes defending her dad thats a good thing isnt it, shes acknowledging her dad has a role in caring for her. its a cant win situation if it was the other way round, as in she thought it sexist that the box said approved by dads, people would be shouting feminazi, feminist agenda stuff

Time to stop this madness before it's too late or is it too late already? The loonies have been getting into childrens heads and changing their mindset... this is verging on the same level as 'mind control'. This 10 year old girl has managed to get kellogg's to change their slogan on a cereal box of 'coco-pops' because she said it was sexist to read the slogan 'approved by mums', she wanted it changed to 'approved by parents' as her dad made her breakfast sometimes and she said 'there are children out there who don't have mum's and they may get upset' but wouldn't they still get upset reading the slogan 'loved by parents'? What about the children who have neither? Won't they get upset? What about couples who can't have children? I think this girl hasn't thought it through well enough.

'Control their minds... control their future' should be a slogan on something..

And this is the next generation coming... this is what's being taught to children in schools and by parents.



She thought it was unfair because 'dads can make breakfast too' and it might be 'upsetting for people who don't have a mum'. So when her parents Anne-Marie, 48 and James, 47, told her to write and complain - that's exactly what she did. Her letter to the cereal giant was so convincing that Coco Pops boxes will now read 'Approved by parents' and be on the shelves in the near future.

Exactly. The box didn't read "Approved by mums. Dad's can't be bothered to give a F*CK", did it?

There is nothing on that box that eliminates dads from the sacred act of feeding their their kids sugar-coated cardboard.

Indeed the world is getting brainwashed into submission.

Yeah but some children don't have parents and some couples can't have children, so the slogan doesn't cater for all those people..

anyway, it's just irrelevant really to get all upset about it in the first place. It wasn't a slogan saying 'dads don't approve', it's just a slogan on a cereal box which people should just shrug off as meaning nothing offensive!

And teach their kids what? Go with the flow. Don't rock the boat. Your thoughts don't matter. Or the opposite? Are we looking for a generation of thoughtless zombies?

There's a difference between being a thoughtless zombie and thinking that if you see something like "mom's approve" that you need to move heaven and earth to get it changed because little Timmy in Podunk, Arkansas, will feel bad because he doesn't have a mom to approve for whatever reason, too.

It's enough that you recognize that not every kid may have a mom to approve, and you and your parents can discuss that and why it may or may not be a good thing or a necessary thing to recognize.

Our kid recognizes some things like that from time to time, but we also talk to him about how big the world is and how many different variations on life there are to try to satisfy.

Do you tell your kids it's okay to write a letter if they feel like doing so?
I think that is empowerment and a good thing.

But i wouldn't complain about this slogan, that is the difference. When I said I was thoughtless, I meant the education I took didn't do much for me back then, it made me stupid in fact with all this rubbish we had to learn when I wouldn't use hardly any of it in the workplace.

Did she really change the world or just an advertising slogan? Better if Parents teach the children to change the real world and not just some inconsequential adverts slogan.

Well I wouldn't call effecting change and a worldwide discussion "inconsequential". This kid stood out. It's sad that more of this doesn't happen. Teaching our kids to not bother is stupid imo.

This is just an example of brainwashing kids to follow the elitist doctrines. Agenda 21 will be their life and this exqmple shows that in spades. It does not give me hope for the future children to be unplugged and free.
