How To Raise A Delinquent

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


  1. 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 off later.


  1. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until he is 21 and let him decide for himself.


  1. Avoid the use of the word “wrong.” It may develop a guilt complex. This conditions him to believe later when he is arrested for stealing a car that society is against him and he is being persecuted.


  1. Pick up everything he leaves lying around–books, shoes, and clothing. Do everything for him so he will be experienced in throwing responsibility on to others.


  1. Let him read any printed material he can get his hands on. Be careful of the silverware and drinking glasses he uses; be sure they are sterilized, but let his mind feed on garbage.


  1. Quarrel frequently in the presence of the children. They won’t be too shacked when the home is broken up then.


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


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


  1. When he gets into real trouble, apologize for yourself by saying, “I never could do anything with him.”


  1. Prepare for a little grief– YOU WILL HAVE IT.
