cue " precedent set "
" someone " will object to " loved by parents "

Didn't see this type of thing 20+ years ago and the world was a far better place with far better people.

I feel sorry for your kids, you seem like you have your mind made up how they should think.
Lol if it wasn't serious.

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.

Just finished my letter to Congress. I'm asking that the White House be renamed because it's insensitive and racist.
