Extreme Parenting | Result: Delete[edit]

Extreme Parenting (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. Yeah, I know, not as bad as: but if we have articles on minor racist vloggers, and we seem to have a few, we can actually devote space to a television program that broadcasts on a real network and has a presumed audience beyond Internet kooks. Especially when it apparently contains self-documenting and interesting woo. - Smerdis of Tlön, for the defense. 05:07, 17 September 2014 (UTC)


  1. Do we need articles on every crap reality show? Is this show actively promoting pseudoscience or woo? Is its intention to get people to change their parenting behaviour? If that were the case, it would be relevant to us. However, I imagine it's more pointing and laughing. Not every show on which morons say stupid things is within our scope.

  2. Delete, with leave to re-present if written to serve the greater good the mission. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 17:39, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
  3. Reality shows depend on hyperbole. Not really worth documenting. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD member Moderator 15:56, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
  4. I have no idea about the merits (if any) of this TV show, but the article is anecdotal & engages in the kind of drooling voyeurism the TV show presumably encourages. It's not analysing anything & doesn't seem to have a point to make either pro or anti the show. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:42, 22 September 2014 (UTC)


  • Missionality could do with enhancing, as could more to say about it than pointing and laughing - David Gerard (talk) 11:37, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm actually on the fence. It's very point and laugh stuff, but I don't think it's very helpful without explaining some of the "wha?" bullshit it has going on. Zero (talk - contributions) 16:20, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
It looks like this is a keeper (sigh). It needs improvement, but which articles don't? Spud (talk) 13:00, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, now it looks like delete. I wish you other two fellas had come along earlier. Spud (talk) 14:53, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
