PARENTING BRIEFLY SUMMARIZED!!!

REARING VERY YOUNG OFFSPRING IS JUDICIOUSLY USING BRIBES AND THREATS OR REWARDS AND PUNISHMENTS!!!

Young offspring rearing and offspring rearing in general is promises of rewards which could be called bribes, and rewards for accomplishments but not generally for good behavior which should be expected and enforced with threats of punishment or withdrawal of privileges.

There are also punishments which are the withdrawal of privileges and threats of punishment or threats to withdraw privileges. For very young offspring the threat of a spanking or actual spanking may also be used to curb serious violence, lying, and stealing.

A privilege can also be considered a reward and/or right to do something at almost any time or frequently. Withdrawing or threatening to withdraw the reward and/or right may be considered to be a form of punishment.

The best way to motivate offspring to behave well is with appropriate praise for good behavior and verbal condemnation for misbehavior. When the positive approach with motivating words fails then unfortunately privilege withdrawal or other forms of punishment may be necessary.

If you include hugs and kisses as rewards or signs of love and affection then this is definitely a plus but even more important is demonstrating the love and affection for spouse in front of the offspring.

The line between rewards and privileges is sometimes vague but here is a likely list for relatively young offspring:

PARTIAL LIST OF REWARDS:

Favorite food (not including sweets or the occasional desert),

time to play with a favorite or special toy,

playing a video game

going to the park

horsey ride

going out to eat fast food

going to the zoo

going to the library

fishing trip

money in piggy bank

wearing dress up clothes

making mud pies

PARTIAL LIST OF PRIVILEGES OR RIGHTS:

going to friend’s houses whenever they want

supervised computer use

listening to a bedtime story

riding on a bicycle with mom or dad

staying up late

setting the table

going to a movie with a friend

sleeping in a different place in the house

playing outside

bouncing on a bed

feeding a pet

making noises with pots, pans, rattles, or bells

riding a tricycle

going outside at night

PUNISHMENTS:

Isolation in the bathroom or closet for a period of time such as 10 minutes

Sitting in a chair or on the couch for a period of time such as 10 minutes

Box lunches instead of school cafeteria food (if you give organic food in box lunches then it is really a reward and not a punishment)

Staying indoors or an early curfew before the usual 9 pm deadline

Taking away a special or favorite toy for a few days or week

Taking away a daily privilege for a day, a few days, or week.

Offspring will sometimes refuse to eat the food given or prepared and they should not be bribed with the promise of sweets or desert if they eat the meal. The best recourse is to just say, no food until tomorrow or breakfast. Children will not starve if denied one or two meals and usually when they are really hungry they will eat almost anything given.

It is the responsibility of parents to develop good habits as early as possible.

As early as possible offspring should be introduced to a wide variety of food so that they learn to eat fruits, vegetables, and meat in a balanced way. Milk, natural juices, and water should be emphasized as drinks.

As early as possible offspring should be taught the joys of reading by reading to them physical or online books and introducing them to the alphabet and numbers with alphabet and numbers toys or blocks. If you want your young offspring to be interested in school or learning then you have to start early at home introducing them into the world of learning from books and computers.

Neatness and orderliness should start young and a time to put away toys should become a daily accepted routine.

Most modern plastic toys are trivial crap which doesn’t teach anything useful so stick to physical construction toys, vehicles, planes, cars, trucks, dolls, action figures, animals, small plastic houses, appliances, tools, and geometrical shapes with different sizes. The more the real world is reflected in toys the better toys they are.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REPAIRS***

service_repairs

Repair: v. to restore by replacing a subset(s) and/or by assembling what has been forcefully separated

Most repairs are done by replacing a part or parts which no longer work or by bonding what has been broken off physically.

Repairs can be frustrating and even costly and this is because most humans want something to last a very long time without the need for repairs and are very disappointed when something breaks. Cars which are durable and reliable at a good or reasonable price are frequently the ones with the best reputation and it is a major reason why humans buy them.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REHABILITATION***

bigstock_Road_To_Recovery_Green_Road_Si_6957686

Rehabilitation: n. restoring from bad (health and/or behavior(s)) to normal (health and/or behavior(s))

In the news the most popular form of rehabilitation is for drug addictions, especially of some celebrities. There is also criminal, work, education, and health rehabilitation which is an attempt at getting humans to live normal lives by educating them with the proper skills needed to lead independent healthy lives.

Some rehabilitation succeeds but many drug addicts and criminals can’t be rehabilitated no matter how hard you try and no matter how much attention you lavish on them. Relapses into addictions or crime are common and it is one reason why attempts at rehabilitation are sometimes fruitless and the only solution seems to be permanent incarceration.

The major reason for the relapses is that once the patient  or offender is placed back in the same environment with the same friends, the old stimuli trigger the same old behavior once again and the good effects of the rehabilitation are short lived.

Health rehabilitation after an accident or severe trauma is frequently successful although some geriatric illnesses are just incurable and the best that you can hope for is a masking of the symptoms but no real cure or successful rehabilitation.

THE TRUTH ABOUT UNPROVEN***

Screen-Shot-2014-03-17-at-3.11.19-PM-225x170

Unproven: n. not having convinced that a subset(s) exists and/or has existed and/or will exist beyond a reasonable doubt and/or not having used the scientific method

Many things in life are unproven but are highly probable which helps us to make sense out of human interactions and physical events and guides us in our decision making process.

There is basically judicial “proof” and scientific proof. Judicial proof is not very rigorous and the veracity of the proof to a large extent depends on the trustworthiness of the witnesses and the accuracy of the facts and professional testimony.

Interpreting the consequences of human past events and circumstantial facts is merely a statistical probabilistic communication(s) and proof in a court of law has an emotional component which is not very rational or logical and can lead to faulty convictions in more than just a few circumstances. Unless there is audio and video evidence which hasn’t been changed with computer software, proof beyond a reasonable doubt always has some guesswork involved.

Can you prove that a common morality is essential for a society to interact peacefully and have trusting relationships between its members? There is no scientific evidence which will ever prove the need for a commonly held moral code but it is an intuitive conclusion reached by personal experience and historical precedent.

Absolute scientific proof is possible but statistical norms are not really cause and effect absolute proofs and there are many real life exceptions to these statistical norms. Many things in life are unprovable in the absolute sense but statistical norms help us to make sense out of an otherwise confusing non absolute or frequently relative world.

Most of us are not really that concerned if something is unprovable as long as it is predictable to some extent. Good and bad habits, beliefs and opinions make humans predictable if you know them well. If you are a good judge of character then you can frequently predict their behavior to some extent and act accordingly.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REFUSING***

PHE1958

Refuse: v. to voluntarily and sometimes intensely oppose and not take a subset(s) which can be given

Refusing a gift, food, or a material possession is obvious but not so obvious is refusing to accept a belief, opinion, or concept.  Refusing a gift can cause hurt feelings but so can not accepting someone’s opinion, concept or belief. There is also refusing a request or question which a human may make and this also can lead to hurt feelings. There is also refusing to accept circumstances, good or mostly bad, and fervently trying to do something about a circumstance to change an unpleasant reality.

If you disagree with someone then their feelings might be hurt so you sometimes have to be diplomatic and say that there are exceptions or examples which conflict with your opinions, beliefs, or concepts. Sometimes you just simply have to say that we agree to disagree.

Refusing a demand or command by an authority figure is a sign of insubordination and unless you have a very good reason not to obey then you may be accused of insubordination which can sometimes have severe consequences.

Being refused by the opposite sex too many times may lead to an inferiority complex or being very timid with opposite sex relationships. Some accept social refusal rather readily and are not upset with it that much and there are some humans who can’t take no for an answer and can pester you until they become a real pain in the ass.

Stalking is symptomatic of humans with extreme determination who can’t take no for an answer or simply refuse to quit following someone around much beyond the point of necessity even with legal attempts to stop the stalking.

Refusing to accept permanent failure in life is sometimes an admirable characteristic and frequently with enough trial and error a human will triumph over adversity or a seemingly insoluble problem.

Refusing to accept mediocrity is what keeps society moving in an upward direction.

It is a truism that more humans should learn to say no more frequently or refuse the bad offers which they are presented with. It is also a truism that humans should learn to say no more frequently to their bad behaviors. Refusing bad humans, bad behavior, and bad concepts or beliefs is the key to leading a good or successful life with good humans, good behaviors, and good concepts or beliefs.

Do more refusing in your life but remember that human feelings can be hurt so try to learn to be as diplomatic about the refusing as possible and follow good social conventions which try and avoid hurt feelings. Learn to refuse or say no in socially acceptable ways and you won’t have to fear saying no to so many bad things in life.

“No, thank you” are frequently the only three words that you need to refuse an unacceptable offer and sometimes a smile can be added as a friendly gesture.

 Refusing a very lengthy contract in its original form is very tempting because the fine print frequently has something disadvantageous in it. That is why many sign on the dotted line without reading and understanding it and is a reason why the smart use attorneys, title companies, and consultants before they commit to an important contract.

ECONOMIC FUNDAMENTALS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY!!!

Spend

There are fundamentally three classes of humans in society.

  1. The “unemployed” who have large financial reserves and invest their money in the hopes of making more money.
  2. The working class who have income from paying jobs.
  3. The unemployed or those without jobs who are also destitute and have no financial reserves.

The right to private property is essential.

The working class must have an incentive to learn useful skills and must be rewarded with adequate income when they do productive work. Private property is essential because communal property is not respected and poorly taken care of. Propertyless humans on total welfare have no incentive to work and can’t improve their skills without free reeducation opportunities.

There must be a standardized minimum safety net for the jobless and destitute with realistic possibilities for some to join or rejoin the working class.

Advancing technology, smart computer software, and robotization makes unemployment inevitable for what will be a majority of the citizens of a nation. The safety net must have a low enough standard of living so that the working class is not incentivized to land in the safety net and live there for a lifetime.

There must be an incentive to reeducate yourself out of the safety net no matter what your age. Internet interactive audio visual computer technological education must be part of the safety net so that all those willing to put in the time, effort, and achievement can have a hope of rejoining the working class status and be performing productive useful work and not make work which is an unacceptable social and economic blight.

It is the responsibility of the monied class and government to stabilize the currency or its value with minimal or no inflation so that the value of the currency does not lose value in the long duration.

Predatory financing with inflation steals the property accumulated by the working class and encourages profligate spending and no saving for emergencies and retirement. A healthy vital thrifty self-sustaining working class is essential for the long duration if the economy is to remain healthy, productive, and not always on the verge of bankruptcy.

A secular moral code must be taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary school so that the peaceful interaction of its citizens is possible and family units become successful relationships and raise productive offspring who are not socially dysfunctional for future generations.

The voting power of the jobless and destitute will have to be reduced by a percentage when their numbers reach about 30% of the population. If this is not done then the working class will become the slaves of those not working who will demand a luxurious standard of living which will bankrupt the system. Equal political rights for all citizens is the big lie which will no longer be sustainable in the 21st century technological economy.

Special collective rights for the jobless and destitute and realistic incentives to join or rejoin a productive working class at any age is vital for social justice in the 21st century.

Promoting healthy organic nutrient rich food and drink without taxation of the industry is vital to the long duration health of the nation or the medical bills for bad health will help to bankrupt the economy in the long duration.
