If competent adults existed in children's fiction

"I don't care if this is your side of the mountain. You can't live in a tree, kid."

"I'm from child protective services. We heard there were children living in a boxcar."

"Fudge almost ate Peter's turtle, but I stopped him because I am capable of providing proper parental supervision."

"I'm Count Olaf. I want the children's inheritance." "I'm their attorney, the executor of the parental estate, and court-appointed guardian. See you in court."

"What'd you do today, Hardy Boys?" "We went to school."

"Pevensie children, please stand back from the platform when the train is approaching."

  1. LMAO! Is it strange I got all those references? I used to dream I would live in a tree or a boxcar...
