Listen to me.

Have you ever gone somewhere, and you see a family with a kid, and that kid is screaming and shouting and kicking because he or she wants a new toy? The family is at wits' end, the kid just won't let up, so eventually the kid wins and they buy him the new Pokeman?

Why not use that kid's energy for something useful, like, making shoes?

"Aw Pepper, yer talking shite again". Aye, but listen, this isn't as bad as it seems.

It'll teach these kids discipline AND give our country a boost. We need both of those to survive in the world's economy.

Not agreeing yet? OK, how about this...


Remember when you were a kid and had to learn shit in school that you never, ever came across again in real life? OK, Pythagoras was pretty bank, but algebra? Come on! Ain't nobody truly need that.

...would it not be more useful to teach these kids how to make shoes, and assembling electronics together, such as iPhones?

Come on! That's commodity production AND serious life skills.

Let's be honest here folks, China has got it right. In 100 years our children will all be speaking Chinese. Do you want that?

China has got this shit figured out. We need to beat them at their own game. Bring China to China before we become them.

Parents are shit, so parents should make their children work to be less shit?

It might at least boost the economy a bit though.

LOL That's a terrible idea. First off they wont learn a valuable skill as you say because each child is not making a toy from beginning to end. They will be part of an Assembly line so they will do a tiny part to build the entire toy. I much rather learn math than know how to screw in one screw in one hole.

Also there is a big difference between discipline and child endangerment. Throwing a bunch of children in a dangerous factory to learn discipline is the worst idea i ever heard.

And finally China doesn't "has got it right" Please do some research before you say something like that. From polluting groundwater from rare earth metal refining to illegal property seize-sure. Do you really want to emulate a country that does that on a daily basis? I have a feeling your one of those people who were screaming about how China was going to take over America after they saw the Olympic games openings hahah...

Mate, you got it all wrong.

Arsenic in elderly homes.

Come on. We all know old people are hogging their pensions. That money should be put into better use, like assembly lines.
#23
Not all kids scream and shout for toys. Whatever good you imagine hard labour will do for the unruly ones will be viciously overshadowed by the harm it will do to the others. Kids should be allowed be kids, their hardship will come as they grow older so why force it upon them now?

Industry isn't exactly the biggest boomer right now, so flooding the market with kids who'll work for a pittance will just rise unemployment. "Sorry Timmy, we can't get your chipped tooth fixed as you took Daddy's job for 1/10th the wage."

The emotional damage alone should be enough for you to realise it's a horrible idea.

Household chores man. You teach them that shit young, and you pay em for it. Bam kid has his/her own money, gets a job at 16.

Really good idea. In order to remove possible distractions for the children we should demolish all playgrounds and ban toys. In that way they can become 100% focused on becoming mindless proles, enriching our dear leaders.

By the way the stuff you propose is not some outlandish stuff. A 100 years back kids had to work like you recommend and as we all know stuff was way better back then. For instance there was no childhood obesity, kids had less useless stuff and they didn't spend all their time sitting at their little computers. We were also way ahead of the Chinese back then.

I love your plan. What can be wrong about it?

I don't really understand the notion of paying children for doing chores.
- They ate from some of the dishes that have been used and probably didn't cook the meals put on them.
- They probably contributed the most to messing up the house.
- They definitely messed up their room.

I can't think of any other common chores from the top of my head but still, why pay them for doing this stuff? I can't understand why you would since it's stuff they HAVE to do at some point anyway (unless they become hobos).
To me it seems like they will expect money as a reward for doing anything and everything rather than to just help out Mum and Dad by cleaning their own friggin mess up like a normal person...Especially since children finish school long before parents finish work, give them something to do with that spare time.
When I was eleven I broke the patio window and my mother sued me... She's always been a very aggressive litigator.

This is highly accurate. Possibly one of the best thread ever created in the entirety of all forums!

Make kids work. They will become skilled and can branch out to become good at a variety of assembly-line jobs. Cheap, abundant labour will mean we can reduce use of machines, thereby saving fossil fuels that we can instead use to power supercars for adults. They will become highly disciplined and learn to focus their minds. This will be ideal for when they need to solve other real-world problems.

Now, China has the right idea with their labour force being underpaid, undervalued and unable to speak up, but we could be better in terms of pollution... Imagine how we would take over the global stage...

Really clever kids could still go to school and learn how to improve efficiency and stuff like that. And it's true - it's predicted there will be twice as many kids as places for them in schools within a few years...

WE MUST ACT NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

PS Typical of it to be a German to think how to ignore rights, safety & improve efficiency & the economy...

Teach them the value of money. It gives them a chance to save up for things on their own, without begging for it from their parents. It's not exactly like parents are giving their kids more than 5-10 a week for doing chores. Unless they're rich I suppose.

This is a good idea. Instead of sending kids to school trips, they go to Mexico trips. Or Vietnam trips. China trips. They can learn from other kids.

I've gone over my plan, like, over 100 times. It's foolproof. I imagine that 100 years after I die they will hold seminars on my theories at the highest universities.

Monuments will be built for me.

Statues.

Books will be documented of my life.

You're an idiot if you think algebra is never needed.
