Parenting is easy

People always say that parenting is hard, in fact it’s the hardest job in the world. I think that’s bullshit. I think that people make it hard but it doesn’t have to be. I have two kids ages 14 and 19 who have turned out just fine and I didn’t have to work very hard at all. I know that some children require more work than others but that’s all the more reason not to make it any more difficult than it has to be.

Here are my five simple principles for raising happy, loving and successful kids:

  1. Don’t let them die

  2. Let them know you love them

  3. Don’t fuck them up

  4. Share what you have to give, recieve what they have to share

  5. Enjoy every minute

NOTE: I might expound on these principles as time goes on but I don’t think I really need to. They are pretty self evident and each parent will have their their own approach to achieving them.  Just do these five things and nothing more. Children are individuals on their own life path. Everything else that they need they will find for themselves in their own way and in their own time.
