And it did prove true that during my child-raising period, those without children were consistently the ones who knew the most about how to raise them properly.

Although the first part of the comic makes a valid (and funny) point about being judgemental, the second bit strongly suggests that someone with no direct experience of something can't have a valid opinion or even judgement of it. Or that they should keep it to themselves because of having no experience.

That's either a logical error, or elections should only allow politicians to vote. And think about what it says about judges and juries?

People without children can have valid judgements and opinions on raising children, but as with most judgements and opinions, they're generally best kept to themselves. And of course experience does tend to improve ones judgement in most cases. (whether that's true for parenting would be an interesting topic for a nigh-impossible study)

Yes, just that. Longitudinal studies on a sufficiently large group for something like that are incredibly expensive and often have issues due to drop out rates. They are done, but they aren't very common.

Even then there are so many uncontrolled variables you are probably only going to be able to make fairly broad or high level correlations for relationships without much ability to check if they are spurious or not, much less the actual strength of the relationship. So you might be able to say that children in single parent house holds do worse in school,* but you probably aren't going to be able to say with any definitiveness "your kid would have been smarter if you limited their TV time to one hour a day instead of two when they were between the ages of 2-5."

*And that could be more due to socio-economic class, parental supervision, bonding time, whatever and not actually be because there is only one parent.
