No freaking crap. It amazes me what's not publicly mocked these days. I couldn't live with myself if I acted like most people do.

Man -- if I really need to, I'm returning those pancakes to the cook, that's for sure...

Just another sign that America is no longer raising warriors. Do the Muslims or Chinese cut their children's food? Never mind--we'll know soon enough.

A generation of parents that enable their children. Same parents will want to solve their kids problems and won't ever want their kids to be sad. These kids will lack self perception and take no accountability. It makes me sick to my stomach. Mmmmm now that I think about it kinda reminds me of our commander and chief.

We have 1 we have to help but he's autistic. The rest are on their own.

When I was 5 I cooked my own pancakes, nevermind cut them.

That's nothing. I was out hunting and killing my own waffles at three. Ain't talking Eggo's. These were big, mean Belgians.

My wife may get laid off soon, and I've been trying to think of ways to put her to work at home.

I'm looking forward to NOT cutting anything up myself.

I think my mom/ grandma cut my meat for me until I was around 5 or 7. Then I had to do it myself. If I would have asked my mom to cut my food for me at 12+ years old she probably would have said "do it yourself dumass." Not kidding. Those probably would have been her exact words.

That's just stupid. There's no way I would have wanted me mom to cut me food for me at that age, especially a restaurant. For one because it is embarrassing but also because I was probably hungry and wanted to eat as soon as my food hit the table, not wait for my mom to cut my food into little bites.

this is the kind of crap that's made me avoid more than a few friends who have kids. i have this medical condition where i have to mock and ridicule people for coddling their kids.

people these days don't let their kids play outside or eat dirt and then they wonder why their kids have no immune system and are "allergic" to everything outside the house.

The parents allowed the kids to be "Emo". The kids dyed, pierced, and cut themselves for attention. The psychologist says the kids are not allowed to use knives anymore. Mom is the only one in the room proffessional enough to cut the pancakes.

I remember when I was only about 6 when an adult tried to cut up my food, I got pissed "I'm a big boy and can do it myself". Now I see (especially little boys) that just love to be coddled and pampered.

I hike a mountain trail a lot, and a lot of people take their kids. It's really sad actually how boys have been so sissified. A little boy falls and skins his knee, he burst into tears and throws a fit. I remember when I was those kids' ages I didn't want to cry because I didn't want to be thought of as a sissy, but I guess that element is gone now and boys are encouraged to be weak. What's sad is when a little girl falls and skins her knee, she just brushes it off and as long as her clothes or hair isn't effected, she's good to go. The boy should be that way except he shouldn't care too much about if his clothes or hair is effected.

I once was doing something stupid that I shouldn't have been doing when I was a kid and broke my arm. I remember not saying anything about it for like an hour because I thought my dad would be pissed at me for being an idiot and breaking my arm.

That sounds like a liberal family. It's the typical, "You can't do for yourself so rely on someone else to do it for you" kind of thing that liberals are known for amongst other things.

Yep, that's one of the many reasons this nation is in it's decline.

I hope the kid was somehow disabled.

But doubtless it was just sloth on the part of the kid AND the parent.
