Frequent Ways of Raising Delinquent Children as Shared by the Police Department.

Hello ladies and gentlemen, you know the saying never to wait till you get to the battle field before preparing for battle, well, I’ve learned to yield to that advice and I pray many others will do same by getting knowledgeable on how to raise children in a happy home just before the ‘I do’ ceremony and becoming parents. And continue to learn even as the children grow. Especially, in this age of too fast, too furious of everything and the high exposure and vulnerability of individuals via all media outlets. 
So, I just finished reading this book by Dr Bill Newman on how to turn a house to a home. You should get a copy too. One thing is that; I so appreciate his sense of humour in writing about some serious issues. He shared a publication made several years ago by the Houston, TEXAS, police department entitled "Twelve Rules for Raising Delinquent Children."
1. Begin with infancy to give the child everything he wants. In this way he will grow up to believe the world owes him a living.

2. When he picks up bad words, laugh at him. This will make him think he's cute. It will also encourage him to pick up "cuter phrases" that will blow off the top of your head later.

3. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until he is 21, and then let him "decide for himself."

4. Avoid the use of the word "wrong." It may develop a guilt complex. This will condition him to believe later, when he is arrested for stealing a car, that society is against him and he is being persecuted.

5. Pick up everything he leaves lying around - books, shoes, clothes. Do everything for him so that he will be experienced in throwing all responsibility on others.

6. Let him read any printed matter he can get his hands on. Be careful that the silverware and drinking glasses are sterilized, but don't worry about his mind feasting on garbage.

7. Quarrel frequently in the presence of your children. In this way they will not be too shocked when the home is broken up later.

8. Give the child all the spending money he wants. Never let him earn his. Why should he have things as tough as you did?

9. Satisfy his every craving for food, drink, and comfort. See that every sensual desire is gratified. Denial may lead to harmful frustration.

10. Take his part against neighbours, teachers, policemen. They are all prejudiced against your child.

11. When he gets into real trouble, apologize to yourself by saying, "I never could do anything with him!"

12. Prepare yourself for a life of grief. You'll surely have it.
Now, I believe you do know the do's and don't to raise children that can better make the society a healthy place, the world really needs them. Grace to all parents and potentials parents. Cheers!
