Tarzan was fiction. These kids are real and represent many bad things to very many people.
Since when do two fine, young,well mannered ladies represent bad things? The very worst you can say about them is that they have two loving, concerned parents. Is jealousy so blinding that you would vent your hatred on children??? I pity your own kids. Please don't saddle them with your ignorance. Give them a chance to develop into thinking, caring human beings before you pollute their minds.

This swingset looks a little young for the girls... like for a 6 year old.... trust me, they will be bored with it in two weeks tops.
The parents always treat the girls as if they are younger than they are. It's also different how one child will walk with one parent and one child with the other parent instead of the parents together. I don't remember this during the Bush era. Husband and wife were a team. Am I wrong.

A swingset for an 11 year old kid? They don't have swingsets on the school playgrounds here. We left swingsets after elementary school and I'd say only the younger grades used them.

Rainbow swingsets are very expensive.I have looked at them when they told me that I can finance a swingset,I walked out.That one could be like $8,000.00.The childrens school also costs $30,0000.00 per daughter.Does he understand the middle class?
$80,000 per year for the two girls, but when "M" goes off to college, it will still probably be $40,000 a year. An article I read said that probably with everything it will be at least a quarter of a million per each "O" child.

A swingset is nothing in comparison. The one I saw was 2011. Did they trade it out for something more massive? What I saw was not a swing set. It was a playscape with slide with a fort-like appearance. Is it abandoned now or do they still go out there for reminiscing?
