5 Easy Steps to Ruin a Child

The cause of the Present Chaos of Raising Children
As seen by the Houston Police Department

Some years ago the Houston Police Department put together a leaflet “How to Ruin Your Children.”  It was guaranteed to be 90 percent effective.  In part, this is what it said:

Principle 1. “Begin with infancy to give the child everything he wants.”
Principle 2. ”When he picks up bad words, laugh at him.”
Principle 3. “Never give him any spiritual training.  Let him wait until he is 21 and let him decide for himself.”
Principle 4. “Avoid using the word ‘wrong.’ It may develop a serious guilt complex.”
Principle 5. “Pick up everything he leaves lying around, so he will be experienced in throwing responsibility on everybody else.”

Proverbs is full of instructions for disciplining children.  

Proverbs 22:6 “Start children off on the way they should go,
   and even when they are old they will not turn from it."

Proverbs 23:14-15 “Do not withhold discipline from a child;
   if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
 Punish them with the rod, and save them from death.”
