*Never give your children an allowance without giving them responsibilities, whether chores, pets, etc. There is no entitlement for free money, no matter what some fools think. If you intend to raise productive children who will contribute to society, make them contribute to your housejold first!
*Teach your children manners, and good ones at that. It may save their life some day. Many a rude and obnoxious person has drowned or otherwise died, while everyone stood watching, considering it a fitting end to for such a rude, illmannored person.
How much the wife is dearer than the bride!
George, Lord Lyttetton
