Yet another too-dumb-to-be-allowed-to-reproduce parent left a toddler alone in the tub to drown, while she left the room (and in this idiot's case, she went on Facebook； whereas Elly would have been doing laundry, watching her soaps or yakking it up over coffee with Annie or Connie -- also because the Internet didn't exist as a distraction for mothers-of-small-children when Lynn Johnston actually was one, I'm sure.)
So unbelievably irresponsible of Lynn Johnston to publish material (TWICE now!!!) featuring parents being dangerously negligent with their kids. If Lynn drew these strips from personal examples of her own behavior, she is damned lucky Aaron and Katie survived.
Criminally Bad Parenting: Bath Examples
Elly leaving Nizzie and Mike alone in the tub while she watches TV
Nizzie whining to get in Elly's tub so Elly apparently puts her in and LEAVES THE ROOM to bitch to John
Little Nizzie, left alone and calling for her mom to get her a towel
April apparently left alone to play in the tub until Elly returns with a towel some time later
