I still think parenting should require a mandatory exam. Like the driver exam. Parenting is one of the most vital things for humanity as a whole, and lot's of parents (just like lot's of dog owners) completely SUCK at it. Heck I took a 6 week session with professional dog trainers and I think that should be mandatory for every pregnant women and future father in the world. Heck, have the gov pay it for them, as long as they pass it they can have kids. If they fail, the kid gets taken off to foster homes until at least 1 of the parents passes.

I guess that is very insane to even consider nowadays, but I honestly believe it would lead to a better world. A much.. much.. less noisy world too.

And by the way.. Even if not mandatory and even if you disagree to my proposed method.. I think the state should at least teach parenting somehow...

Did anyone ever notice how there is this weird taboo whenever it comes to parenting and how most people suck at it? It's a topic I *never* have seen in media, at ALL. Even if cases of gross negligance come to light, it's always the fault of the mother/father but never the fault of the society that does not TEACH parenting. ... gah

Would that we could have an exam and a license to have kids. But I agree that this should be a mandatory course we teach Sr. year of high school. We've learned so much about child psychology. We know the effect of too much discipline and not enough discipline, and the import of finding the right balance. Parenting can absolutely be improved through study, and having a plethora of tools to deal with any situation is a true boon. Also, knowing the negative effects of things can help too. Did the father give the kid some chocolate or a Coke before the flight? It seems obvious, but I've seen so many parents feed sugar to their kids and then watch their kids explode out of control, and then the parents dismayed at why their kids are misbehaving.

I agree that this stuff can and should be taught, and even if you don't have children for a decade or two after you learn it. It comes back to you, or at least it can serve to remind you that it's out there and prompt you to go refresh your knowledge.
