PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN—Due to "increased self-indulgence among both children and parents," the Contemporary American Parenting Council announced Monday that it has raised the maximum age for stroller use among U.S. children to 8. "After we increased it to 7 in 2003, we still found far too many parents inconvenienced by their children's curiosity, mobility, and intellectual growth," said the CAPC's Beverly Kapatis. "Now, parents can enjoy avoiding their kids, and kids can enjoy blissful uninvolvement well into their pre-teen years." In a related report, the CAPC also recommended that the cutoff age for breastfeeding be raised to 6.
