The first steps to parenting

by Stuart Miles


If you are thinking about having a child, you might want to think about a few factors which are going to give your child the greatest prospects for success. Here are some ideas you might want to think about as you plan the future of your child. It will be your parenting responsibility after bonking your partner.
Consider the following:
1. Give your child a useful name: If you want to help them be successful, you might want to spurn famous or popular names because they will never have a good ranking on Google search engine. Better to call your child 'Arrrd' or 'Wtyu' rather than 'Andrew' or 'Oprah'. Yes, we are often confused.
2. Book your child into private school: If you are well-endowed and planning to send your child to a private school, you better start looking because the best private schools have waiting lists which extend past labour. That is right. You have to start thinking about your child's education before you even have one.
3. Learn how to be a parent: Some of you think that your parents were great; but then you only had one set, and the chances are you really didn't know how good your friends parents really were, and your grandparents could have been absolute tyrants before you were born. There is no training in parenting required to become a parent; but that does not mean you should take the lack of hurdles as a blessing. There is a science behind being a good parent. It is not just about love, and even love is over-rated if its the wrong kind. Love can kill.
