How to Ruin Your Children – Guaranteed 100% Infallible
Originally from The Mighty Atom
- Begin in infancy to give the child everything he wants. In this way, he will grow up to believe that the world owes him a living.
- When he picks up bad words, laugh at him. This will make him think he is cute. It will also encourage him to pick up cuter phrases.
- Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until he’s 21 and then let him decide for himself.
- Avoid use of the word “wrong”. It may develop into a guilt complex. Later, when he is arrested, he can conclude that society is against him and that he is being persecuted.
- Pick up everything he leaves lying around: books, shoes, clothes. Do everything for him, so that he will be experienced in throwing all responsibility upon others.
- Let him read any printed matter that he can get his hands on. Be careful that the silverware and drinking glasses are sterilized, but let his mind feast on garbage.
- Quarrel frequently in the presence of your children. In this way, they will not be too shocked when their home is broken up later.
- Give a child all the spending money he wants. Never let him earn his own. Why should he have things as tough as you had them?
- Satisfy his every craving for food, drink and comfort. See that every sensual desire is gratified. Denial may lead to harmful frustration.
- Take his part against neighbors, teachers, and police officers. They are all prejudiced against your child.
- When he gets into trouble, apologize to yourself by saying, “I never could do anything with him.”
- Prepare for a life of grief. You will be likely to have it.
