    cheapens what it means to be a parent.

    I think this is a big problem with American parenting - people cheapen the role and lessen their responsibilities by making false equivalencies - largely because too many people in our country are so simpleminded and fundamentalist about "free market economics" that everything in their life has to be dumbed down and stripped of its meaning in order to conform to that very contrived worldview.

    This is why so many in American walk away from or neglect their responsibilities in parenting, because like Republicans they see it as a career. This worldview is a sickness in my opinion and it destroys children's lives.
