Ya’ll, where are Max and Ruby’s parents?
Poor Ruby is forced to raise Max alone. That’s probably why she has a bad case of the bossypants. She has to be bossy. It’s like her coping mechanism or something. Without her parents, her life feels out of control, so she latches onto the only thing she can control. Her 3 yr. old brother.
I decided to do some research on the Max and Ruby, because
I need something to blog about this is a very important matter.
Look at poor Max being dragged around by his big sister, Ruby. Max seems very stressed and Ruby is clearly in denial. Nick, Jr. says that your child will “learn kindness, working together, and listening to others”.
Although, that may be true, they will also learn that kids don’t need parents. Max and Ruby get by just fine on their own. Sure, they both need therapy, but they get by.
The blip before the show exclaims that it will “explore family values”. Um, ok.
I get that not every family looks the same, but these kids don’t even have a guardian.
Every once in a while they might get a visit from Grandma.
She lives next door. Right.next.door.
Oddly, she does not take them in. She just visits every once in a while to make sure they have food and water and stuff.
In fact, lots of people visit Max and Ruby. Friends, neighbors, whoever. They come for a visit, see that Max and Ruby are holding up just fine, and then leave. Hmm?
There are never any calls to Child Protective Services? Does Nick, Jr. edit those episodes out?
I thought for a minute that maybe Ruby is older than I thought, but I have confirmed that is not the case.
“Ruby is Max’s older sister and this second-grader loves to show her little brother how to do things.”~Nick Jr.
“…loves to show her brother how to do things”? Mmm Hmm. We know.
And remember, Max is only three.
I’m pretty sure this is not legal.
I think this is more a sad story of loss and neglect and less a story of “exploring family values”. Just sayin…
Does anyone know what happened to their parents?
Hopefully this is not them buried in the backyard.
You have to admit, Ruby does look a little suspicious…
