It seems Parenting 101 is no longer a requirement.

What?

Seriously folks, this is what is going up on billboards all around my town. There is a huge new add campaign going on in DFW. Many of the cities and suburbs have banned together to ban bagging. (That was a fun sentence to type! I just love alliteration.)

I just can’t help but roll my eyes and worry just a little bit about the youth of America. And the parents, where are the parents?

Why do we have to have the city government spending tax money to tell kids how to dress? Isn’t this parenting 101. Pull up your pants. Wash your hands. Don’t use your sleeve as a napkin. These are things we as parents teach our 2 year olds. How did these kids get to be teens without being taught that their underwear is supposed to be UNDER what they WEAR.

Next we’ll be seeing signs that say “Don’t forget to flush!”

I cannot stand the bagging pants thing. Why do kids want their underwear to show anyway?
