Has Calvin been watching that new age shill Deepak Chopra? He was all over tv in the 1990’s.
What kind of powers did you have before being “disempowered” Calvin?
Glad mom doesn’t buy his nonsense.
Putting the Fun back in Disfunctionality.
Sounds like a lot of people in politics today.
Especially the ones who did not win.
Gotta let go of all that baggage, man.
Bill Watterson commented in one of his books that “I also hate pop psychobabble.”
Notice that Mom is totally indifferent to the remarkable vocabulary of a 6-year old!!
Calvin might be in a special school for gifted children, but his geriatric teacher is equally disinterested and unchallenging.
yes calvin, it feels good to complete a job well done and it feels good to be helpful.
Kids have always found ingenious arguments for avoiding work. Calvin merely discovered the fashionable language of the day — and kids today are finding their own.
A word salad. Nothing more. At least Calvin didn’t have a need to use spicier word.
It builds character, Calvin….
What’s that look on Mom’s face in the second panel?
Calvin could use a good paddling.
That is like Mom trying to take out a 5 foot bag of garbage, it would have to be dragged and the mess that it would make!! When Calvin shuts his mouth the bag will come up to his hairline!
Just take out the trash, Calvin.
Status matters even when it comes to taking out the garbage. She should have appointed him ‘chief of recycling and saving the planet’ Of course, that would open the door for Cal to go for a power move.
Wait until he’s told he has to put on a mask.
Welcome to the 2020s and twitter.
Dunno, Calvin. With such big words, who can tell?
I shudder to think what could have happened if I had a kid like Calvin! ☺️☺️☺️☺️
Geeezzz, next thing you know, she’ll claim you’re not the center of the universe.
Calvin sounds like the anti-maskers.
When meaningless buzzwords collide.
OMG… Calvin is already a woke, entitled, leftie radical… Someone find Hobbes, quick!!
It’s a matter of perspective…
One would have had to have power at one time to be disempowered… and I sincerely doubt that’s the case with Calvin.
Disempowered? Well, in as much as your getting free room and board and pretty much being kept alive by the adults there, yes. Yes you have been disempowered. Now do your chores.
The only difference is the length of the words.
Didn’t we all find out over the last three years just how co-dependent we all are? And it’s not toxic! It’s essential for life as we know it.
Without any co-dependency we would all have to grow our own food, dig wells, build our own houses, walk everywhere, teach ourselves to read and write etc etc.
There was a psychological fad that believed bullies were caused by poor self-esteem. After pandering to bullies for a decade, we wound up with a generation of bullies with tremendous self-esteem. Beware psychogical fads with new “buzzwords”.
Reminiscent of a typical TikTok rant today. Perhaps they all learned it from Calvin? I suppose it’s good to look up to your elders.
No, Calvin….one’s like this, one’s like the other.
Calvin has a future in upper management.
My mom would say it as “Empty the rubbish.” But usually, Calvin’s Mom tells him to “Gather the trash.”
It shames me to admit the kid has a larger vocabulary than I…
Calvin your tantrums using those fancy words do not influence your mom, but we are in splits.
