There's a few parenting books I plan to read like "the happiest baby on the block". Just mainly out of curiosity.

There is no solution for the fallen negrodrials. They are gone forever. The ones who can make it can use their situation to show other negros that their way is destructive and work with those and anyone who wants to follow them can but can never be fcuked with again.


Not true. People who were raised poorly can be educated or mentored to not make the same mistakes.

I love this.

Maslow's heirachry is a good start for teaching parents on what goals they should provide to be better parents.

First we have to define what a good parent is.
For me, Before you can be a 'good' parent you have to be a 'good' person, and in my opinion, this society doesn't teach you how to do that.
I don't really care for the word good, so I mean an introspective, analytical person who can solve problems efficiently.
One who isn't self serving, and one who can function well in the current state of the world; who understands the purpose of money fully--not as a tool for power and control but for necessity and survival.
A healthy working mind.

When it comes to love and nourishment of the soul, for me a 'good' person is one who doesn't seek their identity in others. One who will hear a compliment or an insult and not internalize it as absolute. One who understands that an insult or a compliment is a reflection of someone else, which is a reflection of someone that person came into contact with which is a reflection of another situation...and so on. We don't internalize these things as the identity of the Self.

When it comes to love, a good person loves because they desire to multiply---they desire to share what they have be it knowledge, material, laughter. Any and everything. Not to control, but simply to share. That's what love truly is...a sharing of the Self in order to multiply the goodness for more Selves to enjoy.

Basically a person who can separate the mind from the Self.

Who is responsible for this? Well it is everyone's responibility but this is not the society we live in. Some societies do this and some don't.

Children whose minds aren't trained to solve problems or to think deeply will grow up to be people with wild minds that cause them to act foolishly without considering the dangers and the implications. That could go on forever because the mind is like an iron shield that just grows stronger in it's conditionings. It can be reconditioned, but of course it always fights new conditioning and it takes a lot of will power to do so. They then have children and the same thing happens..It's a vicious cycle.


My parents planted the seed of deeper thinking: analysis and introspection. After so many years of that conditioning, my mind just took off solving problems well.

Only if they are young, if they are not enlightened by the time they reached 25 or 30 they will be lost forever.

you don't have to be a parent to have an opinion on parenting...we all had parents growing up.  We lived it...experience is obviously another level but clearly there are enough sh*tty parents that it doesn't always say much.  I love great parents, especially single mothers who create smart, confident kids. 

And I'm really tired of ppl being bothered by generalizations when they're negative but always cosigning the positive generalizations.

A good person who values life and empathetic but also logically rationalize situations both short and long term and factor in outcomes in a positive manner.  That's what a good person is and a great person goes beyond that has grit to make society and and everyone around him into better people and inspires people to become great people to spread that positive aura around them.
