How To Raise A Crook


1.. Begin from infancy to give the child everything he wants. This way 
he will grow up to believe that the world owes him a living. 

2.. When he picks up bad words, laugh at him. It will encourage him to 
pick up "cuter" phrases that will blow the top of your head later. 

3.. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until he is twenty-one 
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 anything he leaves lying around - books, shoes, clothing. Do 
everything for him so he will be experienced in throwing the 
responsibility onto others. 

6.. Let him read any printed matter he can get his hands on. Be careful 
the silverware and drinking glasses are sterilized, but let his mind 
feed on garbage. 

7.. Quarrel frequently in the presence of the children. Then they won't 
be too shocked when the home is broken up. 

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

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

10.. Take his part against the neighbors, teachers, and policemen. They 
are all prejudiced against your child. 

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

12.. Prepare for a life of grief - you will have it. 

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will 
not depart form it. (Proverbs 22:6)
