Chapter 14

Running a family is like running a business. You need to have some mental picture of what you want and some idea how to get it, before you ever even start.

This goes double for raising kids. If you don't know or care whether or how your kids are going to turn out, please don't reproduce. You won't be successful, and worse, your kids won't be successful.


And oh by the way, if you think that there's even a chance that there's some kind of heaven and hell awaiting us, imagine how far down you're going to go if you completely screw up the lives of however many children you have.
