    Children are animals. They have to be taught civilisation. It's easy to understand. For a child, satisfaction is 'good'. Over-eating is 'good'. Crapping wherever it likes, as in argies, is 'good'. Thieving is 'good'. Proper parents spend years teaching their offspring to behave. Who wants the world to be like argies or nigerians?

    I was curious to see the comments about this story. I thought it was going pretty mild until I reached Conqueror's.
    Not surprisingly, I found the ultimate statement about children--“they are animals.” Wow. Why would we ever bother to read books about parenting? Just follow Conqueror's advice contained in three words. I am surprised they ever learn to speak! (Animals can't as far as I know).
    But anyway. I was not disappointed to also find us, poor “argies,” included in the same bag with Nigerians (OK with me).
    I noticed, however, that Conqueror avoided the gender-equality topic. (I have an inkling of what he may think about this).
    This tells me he is married and wife checks, or that he's being careful with women who post here.
    Come on, Conqueror, don't disappoint us--give us your views. We are waiting.

    You have a strange logic....
    It's obvious that he has never had children and that is likely because he has never been married...
    ..the guy's a sad and bitter loner.....No wife and No children, his unbroken link since the dawn of mankind...defying astronomical odds of survival....ends with him....

    ...we live forever through our children...and their children's children....
