That's a pretty clear example of an ad hominem argument. Whether he has kids or not has no bearing on the points of his argument.

If his argument had had points, I'd agree. It's just that it wasn't an argument - it was a screed that the parents should have known better and are entirely at fault, and I reject his standing, as he clearly has no idea what he's talking about.
