PARENT LICENSE REJECTED by Kaxen6 PARENT LICENSE REJECTED by Kaxen6
Ordinance KSNH-18 = Kids Should Not Have until 18.

I'm told being an overly permissive parent is actually worse than being a neglectful parent.

Well... at least being neglectful means someone can alert the authorities and stop you from parenting... :-/

Permissive parents (especially if they bail their children out of every problem in addition to never having rules and boundaries) is why the world is so full of morons who can't even grasp the concept that their farts stink.

Or maybe it's an American thing. I'm told American students score highest on "I think I'm doing good" but are actually 25th in math which is behind every country as fancy as America.

But anyway, as much as kids fancy the idea of a world without adults where they can eat candy 24/7 children generally function better with rules, boundaries, and limitations. It's like how Cesar Milan tells you to stop spoiling your stupid dog.

You don't need to be your child's "friend." YOU'RE OLDER AND (supposed to be) SMARTER THAN THEM BEAT THEM (figuratively) WITH THE BAT OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE BRICK OF JUSTICE THEY'LL THANK YOU WHEN THEY'RE NOT STUPID LITTLE KIDS ANYMORE. Or not dead.

And they'll probably think all your 80s references are stupid anyway and find you ungodly embarrassing once they're teenagers anyway.

I think it's okay to skew hard-ass. It works for Asians, at least. And once you build up the habits, your kid will probably stick to them at least a little. :-/


Anyway, while I don't really believe in neutering people, I do believe in the idea of a parenting license or at least a one-child act. It seems like the most ethical way to control the population count unless you want to treat humans like deer and have like... deer season.

Now that would be one weird dystopia... to fight overpopulation, murder is legal 3 months every year!

How long is deer season? I've never gone hunting before. But ever since I took archery classes, I've fancied the idea of going BOW-HUNTING. Just once. I want to kill a deer with an arrow.

Except I think I'd need to take more archery classes if I want to shoot the deer at more than like... 20 feet.

The requirements and testing would be a little complicated, and I wonder how strict it could be on unlicensed parenting, but a parenting license is a great idea!

I hate parents who do/go/buy whatever their children wants. That attitude make them a snobby bastard teens in later years.

I won't even start about fit of hysterics...

I think out of that entire description, the one statement that stands out to me the most 'can't even grasp the concept that their farts stink'.

I once had a dream of waking up to the world 300 years from now. The world was crowded of people and everything was under endless suburban construction and there was not a living tree in sight. When I asked where the hell I was at, they just took a long glance at me and continued building houses. Finally someone told me to go find out for myself somewhere else.

Good lord, we could do with a having children policy. But NOOOO, that would hinder our good 'ol American freedom. :roll:
At least I'm doing MY part in not having kids in, like, EVER.

I think, legally, you can kill a deer with a bow and arrow all year 'round. Somebody used that as a loophole somewhere, for hunting out of season. I'd, you know, CHECK first, but it probably doesn't coincide with regular hunting season.
I think a two child per couple license is alright by me. Or one child per person, so couples get two. As a single child, I can easily tell you that it kinda sucks being alone 100% of the time, and not really having any relationship closer than 'friend'. Plus, it doesn't contribute to overpopulation and some people won't have kids, I'm sure.

Yeah that's true. Maybe a two-child act. It works better for supporting the elderly and studies show only-childs are the most likely to be self-absorbed little brats because they never have to share with that obnoxious little sibling.

I wouldn't wish single childhood on anyone. My life was greatly enriched when I finally 'adopted' a girl a few years younger than me. She's had a very sheltered life and I've had a rather difficult one, so I really try to guide her as best I can as her 'big sister'. Having someone close to me I can really care for who's closer than just 'a friend' is really a good thing.
Coming out as a lesbian to her is actually the focus of my biggest fear at the moment, because I'm scared she'll misunderstand and shut me out. I don't even care that much about what my own mom thinks of me - that's how much I care about her. I wouldn't give up that kind of relationship for the world.
