That, sir, is an indication of great parenting.
The only thing that saddens me (and I'm not sure how much say Bill Watterson had in it) is that they redacted the original text of the strip where Calvin asks his mother if he's was adopted, or there were plans to send him to the cannery or eat him. In the 10th anniversary collection he explains that he thought the juxtaposition would make it silly, but apparently people still complained.
I wish they would have left it in. I think that if adoption is part of your life and you can't be amused by that strip then you probably either need to read the New York Times instead, or you really do need a strip that challenges your sense of apropos.
