When DCFS Needs To Be On Speed Dial: 11 Examples Of Lazy Parenting

10.   You give your child the dreaded “black bag” for lunch on the regular.

I’m sure you have an equivalent in your city but in Philly all children frolic away from the corner store with a little plastic “black bag.”  More and more I’m seeing children join the Black Bag lunch program on the regular.  Its contents usually include a bag of Hot Cheetos, a Little Debbie snack cake, sunflower seeds and an Arizona Iced Tea. If a parent is especially ambitious, that black bag may even contain last night’s egg roll, a pint of shrimp fried rice and two fried chicken wings with ketchup, salt and pepper.  A wholesome lunch this does not make.  Shoot, the latter isn’t even that great of a dinner.  If free school lunch is not an option for your child, you should be finding a way to invest in lunch meat, fresh fruit and Sunny Delight so your child is not subjected to processed crap during the day, everyday.  The “black bag” was what I wasted my allowance on, not what my mom packed for me for the school day.
