hahahahaha! It was worth the read. That really is how it all starts, I guess. Turning a blind eye towards warning signs. Look how Jeffrey Dahmer got started...with the family pets. Ugh. Awful.

I never got back to your continued comment from the last post, but in a nutshell, I agree with you! Oh, and that painting already has a home. I sold it last month, otherwise I would have given it to you. You believe me, right?

You are probably drawing on your experience as an instructor, right? Sadly, too many parents just don't "get it." - Carla

you could make a parenting 101 book of strips.

lol Why would I be mad at you, Brian?

Although, I hope this story is not based on Sarah's life... hehehe...

Say hello to her :)

This is fantastic Brian! Not sure if i should laugh or cry. It's certainly no waste of my time though!

Funny in a scary sort of way (it's funny because it's true). I really like your assortment of characters and the stylization of their looks. The way the daughter grows but stays small is pretty excellent.

I would hope to have enough sense not to raise a child of this sort. Scary thing is, I know A LOT of parents with this attitude.

Yep this is grounds for us all to worry.

A sad but true story and a BIG reason to worry for everybody!Very good issue:in the name of liberty,protection,care(and other big words)many of the kids today are educated to remaind just kids for the rest of their life!No responsability,no sense of duty,just rights,rights and rights!This kids will be the ones who will ''take care'' of us in 30-40 years from now.Everybody can get the picture...Great drawings!!

I thought I commented on this awesomeness. I like the characters, but I really adore the message. Society would be better, as a whole, if we had more good parents and more discipline.
