The Weekly Cynic

Ep.19 – Stop Having Kids! PT1

Part One

2 years ago

A Snarky, Sneering, Satirical Deep-Dive Into American’s Obsession With Reproducing… Or, You Know, Having Kids.

American Parents-To-Be Are A Delusional Group.

Why?

Divorce, Single Parenting, Work, Debt And Daycare... Nobody Is Raising The Kids. Nobody Is Nurturing The Kids.

Having Children Is Simply A Lifestyle Choice For The Ruling Class And Instagram Mummies.

In Part One, Topics Include The Traditional Family, The Economics Of Working Parents And The Social Engineering Of Daycare…Oh, Excuse Me, Pre-School.
