Negligent Parents

Pretty soon after we started re-reading books from our childhood, we noticed a reoccurring theme: really crappy parents. Parents completely unaware of their children’s whereabouts or adventures. Parents who often willingly put their children into danger or peril. Parents who have no grasp on the emotional trauma their children suffer. Parents who condone relationships with Christian Grey. We’ve seen it all, folks, and only wish we could call Child Protective Services on fictional characters.
