And that is why I will take Brian Wallace over James Ford any day... Brian Wallace will insult you over your views of some musician or other..James Ford does it about what kind of parent you are. That kind of thing should really be off limits... If James Ford or anyone said that to my face I'd beat the crap out of them....

it should NOT be off limits.  there is such thing as being a bad parent; and parents should be adult enough to face that fact.  this country has some weird obsession with giving parents the right to do whatever the hell they want with their kids, because the parents' freedom is more important than a kid's needs.  it isn't.

Part of being a good parent is questioning yourself and your partner over your actions and decisions. Part of making good parenting decisions is seeing others (and yourself) making a poor decision and trying to do better for your own kid(s). I just hope others at least share at least that much sentiment.

In a sense, I agree with Hutch to an extent. Giving someone unsolicited opinions regarding parenting, even if you're doing it out of actual genuine concern for the children, well maybe that's a bit too socialist in nature. Maybe as a former teacher, I'm just more sensitive (too much so?) to people making bad parenting choices.

It is like I don't even know you...

Also this thread is ridiculous.  People who want to talk about parenting are not the same people who want to talk about comic books. 

Did any of you comic fans start Red Rover Charlie?  It is a tale about the end of the world, from the perspective of three canines.  it is written by Garth Ennis (of Preacher, soon coming to AMC as a show and then will be really part of our pop culture) and is a lot of fun.  It, like most of the books I read, is geared towards adults.

Talking about parenting is one thing.. of course that is not off limits...but there is a line...criticizing people because they spend money on a pricy concert ticket instead of saving for their kids college without even knowing the person or their situation is ridiculous.. saying a person is a worse parent because their kid is in daycare is offensive...

and I don't know who you are surrounded by... here in Arlington and with my friends in the area having kids all I see is child-obsessed parenting... kids being shuttled from one activity to another...some kids being taken to 4 or 5 events on one weekend day!..parents freaking about what preschool their kid gets into..i just got back from the storytime at westover public library and you could not fit one more kid or parent/nanny in the place... i don't believe that in the history of mankind we have ever seen such an all consuming focus on parenting... i don't say its a bad thing or a good thing but in general in our society today it is all about the kids.. .even the whole "when you have a kid your life is over..." mantra people are told when they're expecting....

i thought, the point of having children, was so you could have somebody to take care of you, when you get old and feeble.  and that whole, vain attempt to create something more awesome than the person who created it.  but what do i know, putin doesnt want me near kids.

My wife's parents didn't pay a dime toward her college. They did, however, give 10% of their earnings to their church. Crappy parenting.

If someone can afford expensive concert tickets AND healthy contributions to your kid's college fund, then that's great! If someone is putting a INFANT (less than one years old) in daycare, making two incomes, and using the extra second income on concert tickets, wouldn't you think maybe they have mixed up priorities?

Why is it wrong to think a baby (under 1) should be with its mother all day? Ultimately it's the choice of the mother, and the man needs to respect that choice.

You are always putting your opinions forht as if they were facts.  There are reasons besides income for someone to work.  For example, great health plan or awesome retirement plans.  And some workplaces even pay for childrens college education.  It is annoying.  We know your wife has you by the balls you don't have to let us know everday.

My parents spent zero dollars on my college education and I graduated and have a decent job.  And neither did my sister and she has a multi-million dollar house in Fairfax Station and had a nanny and a maid.   Evidently your wife graduated from college as well and turned out fine.

There is something to say for earning your own way.  I visited all the mansions in Newport, RI and by the third generation all the offspring were pretty useless people (of course Anderson Cooper is the exception) Giving everything to your children does not equal them ending up being better prepared for the world.
