Thursday 13: Provoke Your Child

I got this from a handout given by the Children’s Dev’t Team from church.

Here are some easy steps to provoke your child into anger:

1. Spoil him. Give him everything he wants.
2. When he does wrong, nag him a little, but don’t spank him.
3. Foster his dependence on you,.
4. Protect him from all those “mean” teachers who want to discipline him from time to time.
5. Make all of his decisions for him because he might make mistakes.
6. Criticize his father to him or his mother, so your son or daughter will lose respect for his parents.
7. Whenever he gets into trouble bail him out.
8. Never let him suffer the consequences of his behavior.
9. Don’t bother him with chores.
10. Give in when he throws a temper tantrum.
11. Believe his lies because its too much hassle to try to sort though to get the truth.
12. Criticize others openly.
13. Praise him for his good looks, never for character.

2. She told me that she only wants to keep her Barbie toys, cellphone toys and wallets.
3. She has more art materials now, like pencils, color pencils, crayons, markers, crafts materials and learn to draw books.
4. She also has more books and magazines. She loves to read them!
5. She loves to make books. She likes to write.
