I love comedian Louis C.K., especially after what he said to Leno when talking about parenting privileged kids. He starts talking about how when he recently gave his sick daughter bubblegum flavored Tylenol, she said “eww!”
I was like, ‘F*#k you, eww! You can’t say eww!’ I’m sorry, it’s medicine! Most children in the world don’t have medicine. Most children in the world, they get sick and they die on a rock with a bear eating them. You’re a little white girl in America. You wear clothes made by children your age professionally! You don’t get to say eww.
Parenting privileged kids. Louis C.K.’s speech really is a modern-day version of our parents telling us to clean our plates because there are starving kids in Africa. Or an “When I was your age, I ….” lecture. All parents want their children to appreciate what they have.
